Firm Profile:  A2R Architects

A2R Architects, Inc. was formed in April 2014 with Rob Henley, AIA (UC Berkeley & SFIA) and Rob Sesar, RA (U of Oregon) as principals of the firm.  Combined, the principals have 75 years of experience practicing in the Northern California.  Rob Henley is a Northern California native while Rob Sesar was raised in Oregon.

A2R Architects is located in Vacaville and provides architectural design expertise for a wide range of project types along with a full spectrum of professional design services.  Services to our clients include: programming, master planning, design, construction documents, bidding, construction administration and post construction evaluations.  Project types include:  assisted living/memory care, commercial/retail, auto dealerships, institutional, industrial and educational.

Our firm’s culture values integrity, trust & commitment and is dedicated to achieving our clients’ vision and our design solutions reflect a clear understanding of their goals and objectives.  In collaborating with our clients and consultants, we create buildings and spaces that promote social interaction, comfort and productivity with outcomes that respect our environment. Two recently completed projects exemplify this:  Sheet Metal Workers Training Center – Local 104:  LEED Gold and the Building 600 and Administration Expansion and Remodel – Solano CC:  LEED Silver.

A2R Architects is dedicated to maintaining a high degree of responsiveness to our clients.  Achieving excellent architecture for them within reasonable and predictable budget and schedule expectations is more than a goal – it is the cornerstone of our business and the key to success.

Educating our clients is critical to what to do – as both a learning organization and as client educators.  Both of these values help expand the design possibilities for our clients in an age when complex and changing technology and demographics — along with a variety of sociological factors — affect the way people work, study and interact.  These elements are studied in advance to understand how a building should function as well as so that it will continue to be relevant and stand the test of time.

The firm encourages all members to be involved with the community and giving back in the form they choose.  The principals are active members of the Vacaville and Fairfield-Suisun Rotary Clubs and local chambers of commerce.
