As an established architectural firm, RVC Architects, Inc. has both designed and revitalized buildings for over four decades. Our initial ideology remains steadfast today – to sustain a unique culture and maintain a community with limited means.

As architects in a rural area, our client base is as diverse as our projects. Our experiences have developed an acute understanding of “fundamental and essential”. We help you determine your goals, then work in concert with you to arrive at a design that achieves them. The results are effective buildings and satisfied clients.

As architects we are avid about repurposing the past to inspire the future. With skill and ingenuity, we preserve a building’s character while converting it to an entirely new use. We’ve turned a printer’s shop into an automobile dealership. A vacant storefront into a government office. A pioneer’s log cabin into a modern visitor center. These transformations are evident throughout Athens County, and along with the dedicated individuals and organizations in our community, buildings of the past will once again be rejuvenated and utilized.

We provide comprehensive architectural services from schematic design through project closeout. We are also adept in the following specializations:

  • Mixed-Use Development
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Commercial Building Permits
  • State and Local Code Assessments
  • Constructability Review


  • EDGE
  • Photovoltaic (Solar Electric)
