Ronald Schneck Jr, AIA

AIA DC Board Director-at-Large, Principal

Ron Schneck is the founding principal of Square 134 Architects, a full-service architectural design firm in Washington, D.C. specializing in design for multi-family residential, custom single-family residential, commercial and adaptive reuse. He graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia in 1996, earning the prestigious Henry Adams Award. After distinguishing himself at several prominent architectural firms, including a decade long tenure at Hickok Cole Architects in Washington, D.C., Mr. Schneck established Square 134 Architects in 2006. Since then, in addition to focusing on academic responsibilities as adjunct faculty at the University of Maryland, he has designed numerous projects, most of which have been in response to the unprecedented growth of the multi-family residential market in DC. Some current projects include The Harrison, 1115 H Street (a LEED Platinum project), and 1350 Florida Avenue, NE. His design work has won several prominent awards and has been featured in The Washington Post, Washington Spaces, ArchitectureDC, Green Building and Design, and The Urban Real Estate Digest of Washington, D.C. Despite Square 134’s success in the development market, Mr. Schneck has remained committed to providing design services to non-profit organizations such as Jubilee Housing, DC Cornerstone and the AIA/DC Community Design Services and has also remained committed to mentoring young architects by frequently participating in lectures and juries at area institutions such as The University of Maryland and The Catholic University of America.
