Located in Owensboro, Kentucky, RBS Design Group is one of the largest locally owned architectural firms in the region.

Our firm was founded in 1978 by Otto Ranney. Mr. Ranney and Architect Terry Blake joined to form Ranney and Blake Architects in 1979. Ranney and Blake merged with Strehl Engineering in 1984, at which time the firm became known as Ranney Blake & Strehl, Architecture and Engineering. In 1995, Mike Ranney joined the partnership and later that same year Ranney Blake and Strehl merged with Ivy/Thomas to become RBS Design Group, PSC. In 2006, our founder Otto Ranney retired, followed by Terry Blake’s retirement in 2009.
