Hy Applebaum and Perry Ressler (now deceased) founded R&A Architects AIA in 1963. Since its founding, Hy Applebaum has been the Principal in Charge of Design. Extensive experience in a variety of building types, coupled with the ability to understand and respond to complicated and exacting client requirements, has earned R&A the reputation as one of Houston's respected firms in design and building technology.

Creative architectural concepts - concepts that work aesthetically and economically, are functional and efficient; represent hallmarks of R&A projects. The firm has diversified experienced in Texas and other states in both the private and public sectors. R&A has provided a variety of services to individuals as well as corporate clients, and has worked with general contractors in negotiated programs.

Our reputation, years of experience, and continuing success is a result of our company "PHILOSOPHY".

  • RESPOND to our client's budget and anesthetic needs;
  • DEVELOP building programs through client teamwork;
  • CREATE innovative designs in context with appropriate budgets;
  • PROVIDE leadership in the design process
  • KEEP strict cost and scheduling control;
  • COMMUNICATE with the Client at each phase openly and clearly; and
  • DELIVER a product that is beyond the client's expectations

This firm is programmed that the principal works as one of the team members and is directly involved with every aspect of every commission the firm accepts.
