RDL Architects grew out of Ron Lloyd’s desire for freedom of expression and his commitment to providing innovative design and superior customer service to his clients.
After a successful career managing the design studios of nationally recognized firms, Ron founded RDL Architects, Inc. in 1994 in Cleveland, Ohio. As a top architect in Cleveland, Ron has since transformed his architecture firm from a one-person studio into a multidisciplinary, award-winning, nationwide practice.
Today, the firm is comprised of master architects, planners, designers and MBAs who specialize in: Architecture, Placemaking and Interior Design. With significant experience in Market Rate Housing, Affordable Housing, Senior Living, Retail, Mixed-Use Development, Office, Industrial and Student Housing, we’re committed to being your project partner, from site analysis to the day your doors open.
RDL Architects is guided by three sustaining principles:
People: treating others with respect and humility
Places: designing positive, innovative environments for living, work and play
Possibilities: creating new opportunities and futures for clients and communities
We have a unique culture of collaboration, teamwork and openness. We value our clients and their vision. We don’t just design spaces; we help to create experiences that inspire.
If you’re looking for an architecture firm whose commitment and experience can bring your vision to life, please get in touch with us today.
