Robert Reis is a design principal and design director at Hanbury, providing leadership for the firm in both projects and competitions. His award-winning designs throughout the United States and abroad include a wide range of project types in government, higher education, and corporate-commercial sectors. Active across all project types at Hanbury, Rob values simplicity, clarity, and restraint as traits of a design that not only stands the test of time, but is also loved and endures, and ultimately matters. He sees major trends toward holistic student experiences that transcend the classroom, viewing every campus space as a potential learning environment, and advised the winning team for The 21st Century Project, sponsored by the Association of College & University Housing Officers International.
"We are problem solvers by nature. Every project offers the intrigue of the unknown and the allure of finding an answer. I don't need to originate all the ideas... I just need to make sure that the best idea wins."
