About Us

At RGB Architects, we are more than architecture. We are designers and inspirers who, through our passion for enhancing the fabric of daily life, turn innovative ideas and abstract concepts into architectural works that form the fabric of the built environment.

Leadership

To us, the experience of our clients is as important as the product we produce. Motivated by our 75-year history, our new generation of diverse leaders – curators of the sustainable environment – are committed to leaving the world better than they found it. We strive to be an active force in our world through teaching, publishing, sitting on design juries, and pursuing other philanthropic involvements. Our impact goes far beyond the studio.
