About Us

We are the world’s most user-friendly architects. Other firms like to say they put their clients first, but there’s a big difference between saying that and showing it. We know this business; let us show you.

In 2000, Rodney L. Sartain founded Rodney L. Sartain, Architect as a one-man architectural firm. Obviously, things have changed a bit since then. We’ve gotten a little older, a little bigger and a lot better. But, through the addition of a few more desks and much more talent, the mission remains the same: to create functional, responsive, and timeless spaces that fit the customer’s needs and budget.

“RLS Design Group, Inc. is an architectural firm founded in 2000. Our mission is to provide quality architectural services and the personal attention every client and project deserves.”
