Our employees are our greatest asset. We are invested in their success and committed to building a community of engaged team members who have opportunities to collaborate both inside and outside the office.


Since 1950, Ruhnau Clarke has served as a multi-disciplinary architecture, planning, and interiors firm to a wide array of public and private sector clients. With an unparalleled ethos of design excellence and client service, we use an integrated approach that builds upon the collective wisdom of each project team member from the very beginning of the design process.


As architects, mentors, environmental stewards and community advocates, Ruhnau Clarke works to foster the education of the next generation of architects through a culture of design excellence, mentorship, professional development and community involvement. We are, at our core, about people—people who are design artists doing life together—in the office, in their community, and beyond the firm. This perspective drives a vibrant energy and lively open studio environment that guides the firm’s culture, drawing on each person’s unique passion and talent, to develop enriching designs.


We are a collection of passionate desginers, planners and problem solvers on a relentless pursuit to improve our shared communities through architecture.
