Reu Architects is an Atlanta based architecture firm, founded in 2009, with projects throughout the country. Caroline Reu Rolader bases the firm’s principles on creating architecture which has a lasting place in the world. The designs are based on the time honored principles of scale and proportion steeped in the inspiration of history and art which infuses the firm’s work with a permanence of place. Reu Architects’ designs have a spacious yet thoughtful flow. They incorporate many time honored historical elements in conjunction with modern conveniences which are created with sound materials. This combination allows each project to have a distinct character while grounding it to its location. Caroline has been practicing architecture for the past 25 years both in an independent capacity and also with firms such as Cooper Carry in Atlanta and LS3P Architects in Charleston, SC. In 2002, Summerour Architects and Caroline worked together on the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC which subsequently led to many collaborations on residential and hospitality projects across the southeast and California. Caroline is a graduate of Sweet Briar College where she studied History and Fine Art. She then attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where she received her Master’s degree in Architecture.
