Our Firm

Robert Hidey Architects has built an exceptional reputation over the past 30 years with a legacy of creating distinct and viable communities that enrich lives. Our diverse national and international portfolio provides unique and award winning residential designs, distinguishing our developer clients from the competition.

Robert Hidey’s passion for residential architecture and land planning began while growing up surrounded by the artistry and beauty of the pastoral Frederick L. Olmsted, Jr.-planned seaside community of Palos Verdes Estates.

In 1991, Mr. Hidey fulfilled a dream of bringing these traditional architectural elements to a broader audience when he established Robert Hidey Architects, Inc. (RHA). Since then, RHA has pioneered housing trends and enriched the residential surroundings of numerous communities across the western United States and the world. RHA’s highly successful architectural design and meticulous attention to detail manifests a distinctive blend of art, history, creativity, and technology.

By bringing thoughtful and appropriate  architectural solutions and aesthetics to a more sophisticated housing market, RHA has pioneered some of the most original and creative floor plan designs and land planning of the last 30 years. 

Today, RHA has approximately 30 employees at its office in Irvine, California, and maintains a talented staff of licensed architects and experienced designers, including AIA, ICSI, CGBP, and LEED professionals. Strong diversification in single-family, multi-family, attached and detached housing, mixed use, mid-rise, interior architecture and high-rise residential design has established RHA’s illustrious design traditions in housing markets throughout North America and Asia.

RHA is fastidious about the research and development of every project. From validating the language of a certain region to designing for a particular lifestyle, each design solution merits a distinct approach. Designs are continuously in review from the conceptual stages through the construction documents. Enhancements to all phases are typically part of the process. Our team consistently “rises to the occasion” and provides new and fresh design solutions that apply to today’s lifestyle.
