Rachael H. Grochowski
NCARB, RA

Founder + Principal Architect

Rachael founded RHG A+D; a boutique, award winning Architecture and Interiors firm, in Montclair, New Jersey in 2003. The firm works on commercial, residential and retail projects within both regional and international markets. A desire to create spaces that connect with a client on a physical, experiential and spiritual level are what drives Rachael and her team. RHG A+D approaches design with an understanding that it is more than just aesthetic and function; design is emotive and sensory as well as being physical.

Rachael is a driving force in her community, both personally and professionally. She has a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Art and Architectural History from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and is a Licensed Architect with over eighteen years of architecture and interior design experience. She never stops designing, never stops pushing the envelope. Prior to launching RHG A+D Rachael contributed to several notable design firms including Tihany Design, NYC, as Senior Designer; S. Russell Groves, LLC, NYC, as Senior Architect; and Des-Syn, Atlanta GA as Director of Design. The scope of her projects ranged from Five-Star restaurants such as Lafite in in Kuala Lumpur’s Shangri-La Hotel, to the flagship Greenhouse Spa in NYC.

Outside of the studio you can often find Rachael making art and objects, practicing and studying yoga and experiencing nature.
