Who We Are



R IV Architecture was established by Michael J. Remesi in September of 2007. Michael has been practicing architecture in the Charlotte area for over 26 years.

Our company is staffed of thirteen diverse professionals split between our Charlotte  and Charleston offices. We focus on hospitality, retail, office and industrial architecture. 

R IV Architecture has years of experience in diverse and wide range of architecture. 

We are constantly exploring design technologies to develop green efficient and cost effective buildings.

We encourage client interaction and develop multiple design concepts.

Our projects are developed in conjunction with 3-D models which gives you the ability to visualize the final design and understand spatial relationships before construction begins. 

We employ cutting-edge technologies that allow our clients to access our webiste and view project status at any time. Viewing of 3-D models, drawings, FTP downloads, and redline markups can be done by our clients from any location. 

"We design buildings and spaces with clear and direct client interaction, resulting in projects which are functionally, aesthetically, and economically successful."
