Luxe 2009 cover imageRichard Blumenberg defines quality architecture by an ability to form and cultivate ongoing relationships—with not only his clients but with the land itself. “I founded RLB Architecture after practicing for over 20 years,” Blumenberg says, “so I’ve had the ability to hone my talent and customer-service reputation. I have learned to recognize what architecture will and won’t work in a given setting, while upholding a client’s needs and lifestyles.”

Specializing in custom remodels and new residential design, the award-winning firm creates innovative and traditional homes in an array of architectural styles. “We can transform a home into a completely new architectural identity if desired, or blend additions into the existing structure when the client prefers the style be preserved.”

Blumenberg considers a host of factors and then pieces these considerations together to generate a well-conceived design. “Is a home comfortable? Is it fluid from room to room? Does it maximize usable floor space? Are the rooms light and airy? No stone is left unturned.” Once the logistics and foundations are solidified, Blumenberg then turns to others to create a cohesive team-consisting of the homeowner, designer, contractor and other specialists. “By employing a collaborative spirit, we’re better able to account for the minute details that ultimately determine a project’s success. Consistency, flow and attention to personal service are inherent to our approach.”
