RKTB Architects, P.C. is an award-winning, full-service architecture and urban design firm with studios that specialize in housing and educational facilities. Founded in 1963, the firm was formerly known as Rothzeid Kaiserman Thomson & Bee, P.C. and RKT&B. RKTB’s practice has been based upon a simple philosophy: to meet its clients’ specific goals while recognizing the broader imperatives of civic responsibility. This philosophy has been forged over half a century of constantly changing conditions and has earned the firm the reputation of being a well-respected and recognized leader among New York City’s design professionals. Among its accomplishments, RKTB created an innovative “Smart Housing” infill prototype that has renewed neighborhoods throughout New York by replacing vacant lots with affordable housing.
