“Heimsath Architects’ consensus approach severely minimized the number of members who withdrew
because of hurt feelings, being ‘left out’, etc.

We plan to use Heimsath Architects for our Phase II construction anticipated in the future.”

Architecture and Design: the Design Retreat Workshop Process

“The Retreat which inaugurated the conceptual design phase of
our project was extremely
well-planned and executed by the Heimsath firm. The outcome of that retreat was a brilliantly conceived general design for construction. Consensus, based on mutual involvement and shared dreams, was their focus, and this hoped-for agreement was achieved through Heimsath Architects’ efforts.”

Architecture and Design
The Heimsath Architects' Process

Over 50 Years, Over 500 Completed Projects

We Envision

We have maintained a focus on architecture and design that lasts through the ages receiving more than 50 design awards and citations throughout our long history. We offer exceptional experience with new site development, renovations and additions. Our designs blend innovation with tradition, making them unique yet contributing to the existing site, its buildings and neighborhood.

We Collaborate

When people have different expectations, resolution is tough under any circumstance; it is especially complicated for building programs. Our skill in bringing people together, in getting groups to be constructively involved, and in resolving disputes quickly and effectively are key ingredients in our work. The Design Retreat Workshop is the result of five decades of work with literally hundreds of communities.

We Design

Our firm has developed a long-standing commitment to community participation in design. Each member of our staff shares in the energy and creativity the firm brings to our efforts. Our team is brings years of professional expertise from a diversity of backgrounds.

We Deliver

By facilitating early participation of the general contractor through our partnering process we benefit from real world construction information, costing and detailing. Our work continues through the end of construction and into the warranty period.
