Commercial / Recreational / Religious


RCG Architecture was established in 1991 headquartered in San Mateo, California. The firm offers its clients the full range of architectural, planning and interior design services such as, but not limited to, master planning, feasibility studies, pre-design services, programming, schematic design services, construction document preparation and the full range of project construction management.

The firm has been fully computer oriented since 1992 allowing the use of the latest technology

such as CAD for the production of construction documents. All drawings and specifications are on computer allowing for the extreme flexibility required. Files are easily transferred from our office to consultants and our computers can be linked to those of our clients to streamline all aspects of a project. All this technology is available but if a client requests a hand drawn set of construction documents, those can also be accommodated.

He has been the Principal-in-Charge or Project Manager for numerous projects ranging from $5,000,000.00 to as small as $1,000.00. These include hotel complexes, industrial parks,regional and local shopping centers, religious facilities and sport facilities. His experience includes being Project Manager of the creation of the largest (60 lane) bowling facility on the West coast to being the Project Architect for the reconstruction of the fire damaged Trinity Church of Palo Alto, CA.

The intentional small size of the firm provides our clients with direct personal contact with the principal, Robert Gooyer, AIA, FHFI on all projects. It has been our goal to never become too large to not offer this personalized attention.

Robert C. Gooyer, AIA has practiced Architecture, Planning and Interior Design since 1976, after graduating from the University of Arizona with a 5 year Bachelors of Architecture Degree. Gooyer has been a registered Architect in the State of California since 1980 and has his NCARB Certificate.

Gooyer is a Corporate Member of the American Institute of Architects San Mateo County, has been its President as well as Vice-President, Treasurer, Director and current Editor-in-Chief of the AIASMC's newsletter "Charrette" along with having chaired numerous committees.
