Welcome to our Architect Spotlight series, where we will be periodically featuring each of Kennebec’s preferred architects and showcasing some of their past projects. Today we are highlighting Charlotte, NC based architect firm, Ruard Veltman Architecture.
Ruard Veltman, Principal Architect of Ruard Veltman Architecture Inc. (RVA), started his own firm in 2005 based in Charlotte, North Carolina, with a studio space in Bald Head Island, North Carolina after being mentored by McArthur Genius Samuel Mockobee at Auburn University’s School of Architectural Rural Studio. Adding to his list of experience, Veltman has trained with and worked under the prestigious architect, author and entrepreneur, Bobby McAlpine. RVA decided to incorporate an interior design division, Veltman Wood Interiors, as well as a custom furniture division, Velton Meubles, to further expand he and his team’s area of expertise. The team of six has served in areas all over the country: Charlotte NC, Nashville TN, Beverly Hills CA, Bronxville NC, New Orleans LA, Columbia SC, Indianapolis IN and Rosemary Beach, FL. They have been published in over 30 periodicals, 10 books and can be found in two exhibits—the National Building Museum in Washington DC and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
