Montgomery, AIA is responsible for a wide variety of project types including Corporate Operations Centers, Residential (both custom and multi-family), Religious, Retail, Medical and Biological Research Facilities.

Rob Montgomery is a graduate of Auburn University's School of Architecture and received the ACI Award for Outstanding Design Student of his graduating class.  While at Auburn, he was also recipient of the Alpha Rho Chi Bronze Medal and the Architecture Professional Fraternity's Medal for Leadership, Merit and Service.  Rob is a registered Architect in the state of South Carolina.  Prior to forming Montgomery Architecture & Planning, Inc., Rob was partner at FMF Architects in Beaufort and an Associate with the firm of Kidd Plosser Sprague & Associates in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Rob also has experience in contracting after having built four houses since the early eighties.  Throughout this process, Rob's love and understanding of the landscape instilled in him in his youth has been a constant rudder, giving direction and purpose to his design process.  His community involvement since coming to Beaufort has helped in developing a new dimension to his understanding - that is the adaptation of a region's inhabitants to their surroundings and vice-versa. Montgomery comments, "The ties of a people to their land were at one time inextricable and the resulting culture was influenced greatly by the inherent natural characteristics of the region.  With today's technology and global influences, this is not necessarily true anymore.  I believe it should be and I strive to continue to be influenced in my work by the regional."

Rob and his wife Audrey have three boys and have lived in Beaufort since 1990.  Rob counts among his affiliations:  Beaufort Chamber of Commerce, Beaufort County Arts Council, Lowcountry Rotary Club, Advisory Committee to the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve, Lady's Island Greenway Committee.  He holds memberships in the South Carolina Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, The U.S. Green Building Council, and the Beaufort County Open Land Trust.
