About Us

Richard R. Bass Architects specializes in custom designed homes and commercial projects that uniquely blend RRBA’s signature architectural style with the client’s vision creating a timeless cornerstone of architecture.

Principal Richard R. Bass, AIA has more than two decades of experience designing luxury residences and renovating commercial businesses for Hollywood and Hawaii clients. RRBA’s list of clients includes award-winning producer, Al Masini—creator of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

RRBA’s philosophy is the customer is first and foremost and the architectural design is an artistic blend of creation, innovation and knowledge. It is about working as a team and creating a legacy project that is inspiring, pleasing, state-of-the-art and uniquely your own.

“I’ve built two homes in Hawaii, one in Grand View, New York, one in South Hampton, Long Island, three apartments in New York City, over fifty offices around the country, and many television studio sets. As a result, I’ve had the opportunities to work with and observe a great number of architects and designers.

Richard Bass by far is the most exceptional talent with whom I have ever worked. He listens to his clients to learn what they want and need, always designing a home that reflects their style and taste, not a preconceived one of his own.”

“Richard Bass is not only the best architect in Hawaii, but from the numerous architects I’ve worked with, he is certainly one of the best in the country. My last two houses are vivid examples of the excellence of his work.”
