About Re:Vision Architecture

Re:Vision Architecture (RVA) is an architecture, planning, and consulting firm specializing in sustainable design and development.

We became a Certified B Corporation: to inspire other companies to adopt socially responsible practices, and to be inspired by others; to allow our stakeholders to know that RVA is a socially responsible company; and to learn how RVA can be more socially responsible.

With buildings consuming 40% of the land, water, energy, and raw materials used globally, buildings present the single largest opportunity for changing the sustainability equation. To remove the most common barriers to sustainable development, the company offers targeted consulting services to developers, building owners, community groups, government agencies, manufacturers, schools, and design professionals. For buildings that have not been built yet, Re:Vision Architecture's full-service staff of architects and planners can design a sustainable building from the first brick to the last shingle.

The Change We Seek®

RVA seeks to re-vision and restore the balance between natural and built environments.

• The company's architectural inspiration flows from three main sources: the chosen site and its inherent natural and cultural features (sun, wind, water, land, history); the goals of the project, including the specific uses of the building/site and expected changes over time; and the creative interplay between client, design team, and community. Re:Vision Architecture integrates the latest approaches in sustainable construction and finishing to conserve natural resources, lower operating costs, and enrich design.

• Re:Vision Architecture challenges professionals from different fields to work together and create a sustainable project plan. It accomplishes this collaboration by holding a Green Design Charrette — a facilitated, multi-day design event that challenges diverse groups of professionals and community members to collaborate on developing the most sustainable plan/design for a given project.
