“A collaborative laboratory of architecture and design.” These words serve as the mission statement of RBF CoLab, a studio that offers residential, commercial, and restoration services. As its name suggests, partnerships are a major component of the firm, ingrained in its process through extensive coordination with other specialists and the firm’s clients. The Youngstown practice is headed by Paul Hagman, who serves as the president of RBF CoLab. He wears many hats: architect, analyzer, designer, investigator, and more. Before establishing his studio, the Ohio local gained architecture knowledge in Florence, Italy where he studied urban design. His building prowess in historical restorations and construction of traditionally styled homes has earned him several accolades and a reputation as a trustworthy partner in his milieu. Among the hallmarks of his career is the historic rehabilitation of the John R. Davis building, a century-old structure in his hometown.
