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.
