We are a group of curious architects who seek to create memorable spaces and places that resonate with those who encounter them. Passionate about seeking authentic relationships in our response to the environment and with each other, we are explorers who design residential, commercial, and hospitality projects that are uniquely tailored to our clients.
We foster dynamic collaborations with our clients, consultants, builders and artisans to develop design solutions that are approachable, responsive to place, and exemplify sophisticated simplicity. Each project is unique, reflective of its setting – whether rural or urban environment, a building, an interior, or a home. Through a varied yet tailored process, we look for ways to explore a project’s potential to create a design built to last generations.
People are shaped by the physical spaces they inhabit. We are passionate about creating spaces and places that enhance human experience and contextual connection. We value design that is responsive to one’s physical surroundings, is culturally sensitive, and takes into account the climate and environment as a whole. As a firm, we are committed to creating timeless works that are deeply rooted to their site.
A winner of eight prestigious AIA design awards, Heliotrope is dedicated to creating spaces and places of enduring quality and timeless beauty.
