History of REB Architects

Prior to 1995, Robert Byrge completed thirteen years of service with other well established architecture firms in Lexington, Kentucky. From 1995 to December 2011, Mr. Byrge was the Principal Architect of the Kentucky branch office of David R. Snapp & Associates, known as Snapp & Associates, Inc. During this time period, Mr. Byrge had complete control of this branch administratively and architecturally. The firm was self supporting, beginning with clients cultivated by Mr. Byrge himself. By 2003, Mr. Byrge and five employees had outgrown his home office in Versailles, Kentucky and relocated the firm to the Bellerive office building, behind the Bellerive Shopping Center, just south of the Fayette County line in Jessamine County. In January of 2010, the firm had grown to ten employees and moved to a nearby office building on Wind Haven Drive, across from the Bellerive Shopping Center.

REB Architects

In December 2011 REB Architects, PLLC was formed. By March 2012, all of the Kentucky Snapp & Associates employees were transferred to REB Architects, PLLC. REB Architects continues to offer the same service and quality provided as Snapp & Associates but under the new name of REB Architects, PLLC.
