OUR TEAM

While each individual that makes up the RB+B Team has a unique set of values, talent and perspective, collectively we all have one thing in common: a passion for designing great spaces that make a difference to our clients and the environment. Our culture is unique and emphasizes collaboration, innovation, and, on a more personal scale, work-life balance. We enjoy activities together both in and out of the office, including hikes, picnics, happy hours, giving back to the community, and Friday design chats, to name a few.
