Company Profile

Chris Renier made a choice over 20 years ago to have a small, boutique architecture firm that focused on only a handful of projects at a time to ensure he could be personally involved in all aspects of the projects he took on. Today, that personal approach remains—and involves a few additional like-minded colleagues who are committed to an architectural process that brings you joy, excitement and daily communication

We’re committed to you. We believe that your dreams, ideas, and needs are personal and confidential. We seek a partnership with you that is based on trust and open communication. We hope that those who told you about us will confirm our integrity. It matters to us—a lot—that you feel you can share openly as we embrace this opportunity together.

C. Renier Architects is located in the historic business district of 125-year-old De Pere, Wisconsin. Our office is located across the street from where Chris’ dad used to run a bakery. We love the energy and revitalization efforts of small towns and are proud to be a part of the efforts underway throughout Brown and Door County, Wisconsin.
