Testimonials

“In my position as City Architect I have had the pleasure of working with RVK on the design of the new District 10 Senior Center.  RVK has been responsive to our requests and to our client department’s needs. Their design work is innovative yet practical; a combination that best suits the City of San Antonio. They have been tasked with designing a project with a strict budget, and are working within that budget to produce a design that is inspirational and supportive of the needs of our senior center and community patrons.”

"RVK provided the architectural, design and project oversight for our . . . office building located in Shavano Park, Texas.  I have always been impressed with the firm’s creative designs on other structures, and I wanted the same creative talent for my project.  I was not disappointed.  In addition . . . the team designs buildings with high structural quality and a focus on operational efficiency that I believe to be rare.  I will use RVK on future building projects and I would without question recommend the firm to others."

“The interplay of light and the indoor blending to outdoor space is delightful and I appreciate the incorporation of San Antonio’s great trees.  The reading spaces provide plenty of controlled daylight and immerses, not excludes, the user in nature.  The Architect did a great job of incorporating nature while servicing interior functions.”
