RMKM Architecture provides clients extraordinary passion for design excellence and a mandate to push the boundaries of the professional services we offer. Since 1995 RMKM has built a formidable reputation and an impressive body of work for municipal, state, education, and university clients. RMKM’s design approach is responsive to New Mexico and the Southwest’s unique sense of place, tri-cultural population, and high desert climate; our built work strongly reflects those influences. Key RMKM building type specialties include museums, libraries, community centers, law enforcement/public safety/courts, healthcare, primary, secondary and higher education, and the occasional private residence. More than 50 professional awards and countless accolades from clients and users are testimony to of the firm’s consistent commitment to design, the art of architecture, and service excellence. In 2015 RMKM was named AIA New Mexico Firm of the Year.


We consider our design process to be flexible and intuitive. It begins with an exploration of the essence of the project, aimed at uncovering the subtleties of programmatic goals and the deeper layers of meaning in a project's context and site. Once we understand the full extent of the problem to be solved, we firmly believe that solutions are best achieved through meaningful collaboration with all project stakeholders. Through effective collaboration, and the consideration of many well developed concepts, we have the ability to achieve design solutions that successfully create enhanced value for the stakeholders, as well as the social and physical environment.

The architect – client relationship is akin to a partnership. With budget, schedule, and project vision at stake, trust is imperative. For this reason, we seek to establish clear communication, understood expectations and overall good relationships early on in a project. With a trusting team in place, each individual becomes more willing to ask important questions and more personally invested in doing what it takes to realize a successful project.

RMKM occupies the 11th floor of the Simms Tower in downtown Albuquerque. In line with our firm’s philosophical tenets of collaboration and direct principal involvement, our studio boasts no executive office suites. Rather, our studio’s open floor plan integrates the Principals into the flexible work environment where RMKM designs and produces projects. Experience has proven that our open-interactive approach promotes synergy, cooperation and flexibility that will ultimately better equip the entire team to solve design problems and enable concepts to evolve as the most appropriate planning-design-development solutions.
