Leadership

Christopher Allred, AIA LEED AP
Director of Design

A North Carolina native, Christopher grew up in the small mountain town of Hendersonville until moving to attend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, College of Architecture.  After extensive experience working as a project manager and lead designer with other local firms, Christopher joined RBA in 2012 to lead the Multi-Family division of the firm and lend his experience to the Hospitality division as well.

A small town sensitivity influenced by travels abroad and twenty years in Charlotte permeate his work, molding North Carolina vernacular with the modern archetype. “A sense of place is important to me, whether working in a small town or along an urban street. While the scale and material palate may differ, the architecture that works within a small town is the same type of architecture that works in more metropolitan areas and each draw from one another.”

When not in the office, Christopher can be found spending time with his wife Ellen traveling, on the golf course or cheering on the Carolina Panthers.
