Rhodes+Brito Architects, Inc

A full-service architectural practice founded in 1996

Rhodes+Brito Architects, Inc, is a full-service architectural practice founded in 1996. In 2016 we proudly celebrate the company's 20th year providing architectural services in Florida. This was the same year we were recognized by the Orlando Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as Firm of the Year. Over the last two decades the award-winning design firm has grown to become one of Central Florida's top architecture practices. The company, which is certified as an 8(A), features a portfolio with a range of project types and sizes for Federal, State, County, Municipal, Education, Aviation, Healthcare, and private clients. During the formation of the firm, our company founders (Ruffin Rhodes, AIA and Max Brito, AIA) made the strategic decision to create a true "hands on" design firm. This goal has enabled the owners to actively participate in the design process on a day-to-day basis. This long-term plan has proved a successful business model, as it today our four Principals participate in doing what they love the most each day, practice architecture.

Design Philosophy

The Rhodes+Brito Architects team believes that the built environment created by architects and designers has an important influence on society. From the smallest renovation to the largest mixed-use project, a design firm has the responsibility to create places that will have a positive impact on a community. Rhodes+Brito designs educational, commercial, civic, aviation, recreation, and hospitality projects that encompass the important attributes necessary to achieve client and community satisfaction.


Over the past decade, Rhodes+Brito has developed solid relationships with clients throughout Central Florida. These relationships are founded on trust and mutual respect based upon the understanding of each others roles and responsibilities.


As the architectural world moves forward, the firm recognizes that its team members must be a step ahead. Each designer is encouraged to stay current on new design trends, advancement of products available, new construction techniques, and economic methods of incorporating elements of green design, to name a few. The company's professionals understand the constant changing economic and demographic constraints on the profession, and design accordingly. Issues of context, materials, color, proportion and detailing – vital elements for a successful project – are thoroughly examined to create quality economical projects.


The professionals at Rhodes+Brito like to say "We have an architect for every client." What is meant by this is that the team includes designers who have demonstrated skill sets that reflect a multitude of architectural styles. The team's talent for design has been recognized accordingly through a number of design awards for projects reflecting a variety of architectural vernaculars.
