Throughout the firm’s history, RGR’s design approach has focused on the user experience and creating environments that bring pleasure, promote wellness, and foster learning. In addition to the firm’s wide range of experience, RGR distinguishes itself with an accomplished professional staff of both landscape architects and architects, a client-centered design process, and successful collaboration with diverse consultant teams.

The firm emphasizes communication with its clients as the cornerstone of its master planning and design work and we are accustomed to significant public involvement by local interest groups and public agencies. RGR’s design process is inclusive, collaborative, and interactive, thereby facilitating communication and maximizing user input.

Our landscape and architectural design efforts have always incorporated sustainable site and building initiatives wherever possible, including the preservation of existing vegetation, the use of native plants, natural site drainage strategies, permeable pavement, and renewable materials.

With each new project, our goals have remained the same, to develop a design vision that blends seamlessly and gracefully with its environment and to create spaces for people that are safe, comfortable, and beautiful.
