Robert Donaldson Joins Domokur

This talented architect and sustainability leader brings much to our team.

Rob joined our team this fall, bringing with him an impressive portfolio of architectural design and project management experience. He has won numerous awards, been published in Architectural Record, and has exhibited his work internationally. His dedication to working closely with clients, enabling their dreams to be built within their schedule and budget, has been the driving force of his career successes.

One of Rob’s particular specialties is sustainable design and urban agriculture. He is a LEED AP with the BD+C specialization, and he guided the Williams Field House at Oberlin College to LEED Gold certification. His design competition submissions have earned semi-finalist and finalist status, including Dwell’s “Reburbia” Competition (Finalist, 2009), the Chain of Eco-Homes competition (Top 10 Popular Entry, 2009), and a finalist to receive a design research grant from Dyson and Dwell (2012).

Right here in Cleveland, Rob is project architect for the Biocellar project at Chateau Hough. The project of the first of its kind in the world, based on an idea that delivers a smart solution to both abandonment and food desert issues by converting the basement of a demolished abandoned home into a center of urban agriculture. The Chateau Hough project has been featured in a recent TEDxCLE talk and is currently under construction.

“I have found working at Domokur to be a fun, enlightening experience given the great people, diverse project types, and our amazing clients,” Rob says.

We welcome him to Domokur Architects, and look forward to further project successes with him on our collaborative team.
