Harold Remlinger, Principal Architect of DesignTeam Plus, LLC, comes from a long line of architects; his ancestors in Belgrade worked as master builders in the Austria-Hungarian Empire, and some of their buildings, dating back to the 1850s, still stand today. The resiliency of buildings, to weather the forces of history and the natural environment over a period of centuries, drives Remlinger to design indoor and outdoor spaces that stand the test of time, and which respect the environment in which they are created.

“That’s all intrinsic to me,” Remlinger says. “When I finish a project, I love to watch people interact within the space. I learn so much as I observe. That’s partly why I love architecture; it’s a profession where opportunities for growth are limitless. In finding architecture, I found a career that I love.”

Remlinger, who is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards and can practice in all 52 jurisdictions, including all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico,has over 30 years of experience completing projects varying in scale and complexity. It’s difficult for him to pick a favorite project, but points of pride include major religious centers where architecture involves symbolism and a relationship to scripture, and the preservation of significant features in the adaptive reuse of historic buildings.

Remlinger holds a Master of Architecture from Lawrence Technological University and lectures widely on planning, sustainability, and renewable energy solutions, drawing upon his extensive relationships with municipalities and other government entities to move projects forward. “The more I work in communities, the more I see conscious design as an ethical mandate,” that informs his approach to each project as well as the materials sourced, he says.

At DTP, Harold has built a collaborative team that is empowered to lead on various aspects of each project in order to meet and exceed client goals and expectations, and to create an atmosphere of continual professional development among the entire staff.

Harold is an active member of the AIA, Detroit USGBC, and is a past Advising Architect of the Village of Warren Historic Commission. He has presented to a variety of groups such as Central Michigan University, Lawrence Technological University, Green Team, NARI of Tampa Bay, ASHRAE, Stadium Drive Elementary School, and Van Dyke Public Schools, and advises the Romeo High School Drafting program.
