Heidi Hornaday, Architect, PC was founded in 1994 and is located in southwest Michigan.
We specialize in residential and commercial design and have completed a variety of projects
ranging from custom homes, renovations, and additions to historic cottages, high-profile
retail and commercial commissions.
Our approach to design begins with an understanding and respect for the site context and
locality. We collaborate closely with our clients, translating their vision and synthesizing
their goals with the requirements of local building codes to create unique solutions.
Our designs are not style based but focus on the architectural fundamentals of light and space
with careful attention to detail.
As a small design firm, our reputation has been built project by project. Each project is
important to us and requires an individual approach. We take pride in providing our clients
with guidance through all phases of architectural design, budget review and construction.
We strive in every project to further our commitment to architectural design integrity and to
create a positive design and construction experience for our clients.
