Firm Description

We help developers distill and give form to their visions -- creating a roadmap that guides projects from informal napkin sketches to final ribbon-cutting. We maintain the creative integrity of your project throughout the design process to help execute your vision.

Rebecca Costanzo is the founder of Vision Keepers. She is a licensed architect, urban designer, branding specialist, and artist.

Rebecca's design approach pays homage to the context and character of neighborhoods, while adding the next layer to that history. She believes in the healing power of nature and advocates for universal access to nearby parks. She helps design cities that work by blending her Master's Degree in Architecture from Columbia University with an undergraduate degree in Cultural Anthropology from William & Mary. Her research draws lessons from multi-generational homes in Mexico. She has contributed to exhibits and events about housing at the MoMA, the Buell Center for American Architecture, the Institute for Public Architecture, and the New York Center for Architecture. She volunteers with Neighborhood Design Center and Storefront for Community Design.

Rebecca mentors emerging designers at every opportunity, from spearheading AIA Mentoring programs to co-founding Women@Stantec in DC. She naturally connects people, has recruited talent to architecture firms and brought together teams for project pursuits.

Having lived and worked in Mexico City, New York, Chicago, and Washington, DC, Rebecca has returned to her hometown of Richmond. With all that she has learned from these diverse experiences, she is ready to roll up her sleeves and make a difference.
