Meet RoehrSchmitt: “A unique firm keeping it real” in Minneapolis

CVG is thrilled to announce the milestone of partnering with our twentieth small architecture firm! We know you’ll enjoy getting to know them as much as we have…

When we first met with RoerhrSchmitt principals Michael Roehr and Chris Schmitt, we couldn’t help but note how aligned their goals and culture are with those of CVG and our partner firms. RoehrSchmitt has a great reputation in the Minneapolis region. Their innovative portfolio is growing and diversifying — and they are hiring additional staff. But the principals felt that they needed a boost to get to the next level; in fact, Chris said “it’s like we need a personal trainer for our business.” With that, we knew RoehrSchmitt would be an excellent fit with CVG.

Michael and Chris founded RoehrSchmitt in 2006 on the belief that at its core, good design requires taking a fundamentally optimistic view of the world, and they're committed to the idea that there should be no conflict between doing what’s best for their clients, their communities and themselves. 

We come to work each day jazzed to find that sweet spot where the interplay of quality and value is balanced and optimized, where work and play are virtually indistinguishable. - Michael Roehr

As dedicated architectural generalists, they endeavor to create beautiful buildings, recognizing such buildings cannot be deemed successful unless they satisfy the pragmatic demands of the program and client – they’ve got to work, be affordable, perform well over time, and make a positive contribution to the world we share. 

RoehrSchmitt specializes in adaptive reuse, library design, office and tenant improvements, and interior architecture.

Seeking solutions that balance resilience, value and identity is central to RoehrSchmitt's practice. Listening to their client's goals and looking for the unique opportunities presented by each project defines their strategy for creating distinctive work that meets the challenging criteria of firmness, commodity and delight.

Our business model is constantly evolving to optimize the relationship between innovation, quality and value. - Chris Schmitt
