ART's History

ART carries a long history of tradition and values that our staff continues to embody and honor through the quality of our work each day.

Rhonda Gillogly, AIA-President and firm principal is supported by ART’s firm Director Kenn D. Triebelhorn, AIA, as well as a staff of architects, designers and support personnel. The firm was established in 1975 by Peter Rasmussen and Del Hobbs as RasmusenHobbs, P.S., Architects/Planners. Kenn Triebelhorn joined the firm in 1976, and in 1992 the firm name was changed to Architects Rasmussen Triebelhorn, AIA/ps. Peter Rasmussen retired from the firm in August of 2017 and provides design consultant services to the firm. Rhonda Gillogly purchased the firm in July 2017 and has been with the firm since 2005, and a principal since 2007.

Principals are licensed architects in the states of Washington, Idaho and Colorado. 

ART has earned its reputation as a solutions oriented firm by consistently demonstrating a strong commitment to providing A/E services with a strong emphasis on cost effective, well designed, highly efficient facilities with strong design ties to the communities they serve. The firm's commitment to high-quality design and innovative solutions to complex problems has resulted in numerous prestigious regional and national awards over the years.

Our design services are a direct reflection of our clients' specific requirements. We believe our task is to be responsible to our clients needs and to give our clients the information and recommendations necessary to make the required value judgments. We guide the process, and when more than one user group is involved, we assist in reaching a consensus for the best possible solution balancing all considerations.

Because we provide a thoughtful owner-involved process as well as high-quality structures, many projects lead to repeat clients. We believe this client satisfaction is the true measure of our success.

Integrity, honesty, responsiveness, and professionalism are the key values that have formed the firm's culture which will continue to be the basis of our continued success and new client relationships in the future.
