AAA Architecture is a generic name but our work is not. The name symbolizes our belief that our work and the values embodied within it should stand for itself without branding or superlatives. Each of our projects is a carefully tailored response to a unique set of circumstances. We work past preconceptions to arrive at artistic solutions to our clients’ needs and desires, while also considering the needs of the environment and our broader society.
Randolph R. Ruiz created AAA to work directly with clients to develop contemporary, engaging, and environmentally responsible places, spaces, and objects. AAA has produced award winning work that has been featured in print, exhibitions, and online.
We take inspiration from his home state’s rich geography, history, and architecture. California has been an incubator for some of the greatest developments in modern architectural history – a legacy that AAA seeks to maintain.
AAA operates from two locations in California to serve clients throughout the state.

Few people know exactly what they want or need. We can help our clients prioritize their objectives into a feasible set of project goals. Our experience and knowledge of how things are built, and how people inhabit these spaces gives us valuable insights that can help you to determine what is essential.
We have started many of our projects with an analytical planning phase upon which a successful design process can be founded.
Beyond the realms of building and real estate, lies Architecture. One of humanity’s highest forms of artistic and functional expression, Architecture has a unique potential to create human connections and experiences. What we build is one of the ultimate declarations of what we value. What do you value?
We provide the full range of architectural services from Pre-Design through Construction Administration
The spaces you inhabit are defined by surfaces and objects that each tell a story of use and intent. These things that you touch and view should be tools to help bring comfort, order, and usefulness to your world.
We have provided a range of Interior Design services including custom furniture, color selection, acoustic treatments, and exhibit design.
Randolph R. Ruiz
I work directly with our clients to design places that are contemporary, engaging, and environmentally responsible. My passion for architecture drives me to constantly seek opportunities to make our work better both artistically and functionally.
I have worked on a diverse array of building-types from restaurants and residences, to theaters and office towers, and am a Senior Adjunct Professor of Architecture at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
I’ve been licensed to practice architecture in California since 2005 (#C30117).
