About RSC Architects

Design excellence and quality service are the hallmarks of RSC Architects, a New Jersey-based architectural firm that has been providing exceptional designs and quality service since 1971. RSC Architects was originally founded by Richard B. Rivardo in 1971. Several years later, Mr. Rivardo partnered with John S. Schnitzer and John P. Capazzi to become Rivardo-Schnitzer-Capazzi Architects. In October 2005, the company officially changed its name to simply RSC Architects.

Mr. Capazzi has been providing leadership to RSC Architects since 1993, and has been the sole owner of the firm since 2005. He guides our team with a great knowledge base and 30-plus years of experience in the architecture industry. His extensive experience in planning and design for both public and private clients has resulted in the firm’s continued success and acclaim. Mr. Capazzi’s involvement in each project ensures our clients that they will have direct access to a key decision-maker.

Our talented and professional staff provides a unique blend of creativity and quality coupled with industry experience and attention to detail that is evident in every project we commission. Our staff, capabilities, and experience offer the resources and depth of service often associated with a larger architectural firm. We are also a continual resource for our clients, demonstrated by the number of long-term client relationships we maintain — some for more than 30 years. What makes us standard apart from the rest? — We listen.


Our mission is simple: to enhance life through innovative architecture. Our approach to projects follows an equally straightforward philosophy: we will listen to your needs and goals, earn your trust through open and honest communication, and deliver creative and cost-effective solutions, both on time and within budget.
