Romero Architecture Wilmington NC Architects

One of the most rewarding aspects of designing a project is getting to know my clients and creating art that is specifically commissioned to their building. The combination of art and architecture is part of my ethos.

My directive is: Primal, Intuitive. Thoughtful.


Early in Rob Romero's architectural career, he had the fortunate opportunity to work in Antoine Predock's office on a wide range of projects from cutting edge custom residences (Rose House - Dallas), to massive convention centers (Agadir, Morocco) to iconic museums (American Heritage Center and Art Museum) to amusement parks (Disney Mediterranean Hotel in Orlando). Since then, he has worked for several other design-oriented architectural firms until stepping out on his own. 

In 2000, he created Romero Architecture in Wilmington, NC and has pursued all scales of projects from retail/commercial architecture to residential and renovation to medical and dental office design.. As with each project, he believes that site analysis is vital and he makes an effort to experience each location as part of his duty as an architect to inform his design intuition.

Let the beauty we love, be what we do.
