About Us Flash Presentation Management


Since its inception in 1964 by its founding principal Roy Rosenbaum, AIA, Rosenbaum Design Group Architecture, D.P.C. has designed thousands of multi-scale commercial structures. Experience is the unshakable foundation on which RDG has built a solid reputation and a loyal customer base. We offer the speed, flexibility and personal service of a small firm and the expansive resources and expertise of a large, diversified firm. The result: projects are completed on time, within budget and to the satisfaction of clients' business goals and aesthetic sensibilities. Our mastery of the following types of facilities is unparalleled:

The intense competition among supermarkets, which translates into just pennies of profit per item, means an ongoing search for sales and design innovations that minimize overhead and maximize appeal. A hands-on knowledge of food market design comes from rendering professional services in more than 1,200 stores.

Retail Establishments
RDG works closely with scores of large retail enterprises throughout the country. We create shopping environments that stimulate purchasing and complement neighboring areas. Incorporating our knowledge of interior flow, ease of purchasing and building aesthetics, we have designed both new and renovated facilities that have fulfilled consumer needs and generated economic success for our clients.

Shopping Centers
From preliminary studies and concept development through public hearings and presentations, we understand the importance of groundwork and attention to details that spell success for a shopping center. We are veterans in coordinating tenant requirements and integrating tenant-specific needs into the project design.

Commercial Spaces
Commercial building design must take into account the developer's image, the external surroundings and the residing tenant's needs. RDG has worked with many developers and clients to design hotels, office buildings, industrial facilities and various specialty structures. Drawing on our extensive background in the commercial design process, we can propose a multitude of cost-and time-effective solutions that meet client expectations.


We take exceptional pride in a diverse staff of fastidious professionals and support personnel who share creative ideas and a commitment to client service. Ours is a multi-cultural, multi-talented, broadly experienced group that brings fresh perspective to every job. They are characterized by a spirit of ingenuity, and a dedication to combining design excellence and practical architectural procedures. Our staff knows what it takes to get a project from the drawing board to bricks-and-mortar form. They understand that successful commercial architecture - whether renovation or new buildings -- is in the details; every job must incorporate a thorough knowledge of current construction regulations, methods and materials, store merchandising and sales psychology. They recognize the impact of relevant site-specific, physical, social and economic factors.


A Reverence for Service
We are committed to full-scale, personal service through every phase of an assignment, beginning with feasibility studies, and ending only when the client is satisfied. RDG excels in the fundamentals of project development, including:

  • zoning analysis
  • building code investigation
  • site evaluation and selection
  • strategic planning
  • conceptual design
  • expert testimony for the municipal process

Our in-house team is also fluent in the process of securing permits, Certificates of Occupancy and other critical paperwork, eliminating the headache of what can be a confusing, time-intensive task for the uninitiated.

Specialty Consultants
Our turnkey operation includes access to a selected number of top-quality specialty consultants. RDG's long-standing relationship with these trustworthy associates has expanded our technical expertise and enabled us to deliver projects with precise construction documents.

Throughout the years, we have consistently implemented organizational practices that ensure our customers' best interests. Among them:

  • A high regard for confidentiality
    As a commercial architectural firm with extensive regional exposure, we pay particular attention to our clients' right to privacy. To that end, a separate team headed by a dedicated Senior Associate handles each major client.
  • A state-of-the-art office
    Our CADD (Computer-Aided Drafting and Design) system uses the most current and widely accepted equipment and software. We can interact with clients, consultants and contractors quickly and easily with the use of our custom-designed Document Sharing site. This allows clients to view, download and print drawing files from our secure website within seconds of their completion. RDG and its consultants are able to exchange and use one anotherís' files immediately upon completion, significantly reducing cost and time constraints of traditional communication methods.
  • A national and international presence
    We maintain active architectural licenses in more than three-quarters of the United States, and are qualified by way of reciprocity to practice in the remaining continental US. In addition, we support our international clients with design services worldwide.

Our blueprint for success:
"A reverence for details, first-rate service and unfailing attention to each client's unique needs."
