Heather Cain


Associate Principal

“Designing is not solely about aesthetics; it also entails listening and interpreting your client’s needs from thoughts and concepts to something that's real to the touch. I love to understand how clients function, work, and interact, and then translate that into the way their spaces are organized and designed.”

Heather believes that architecture allows her to not only bring drawings to life but tell a story that words cannot. She uses her eye for design and passion for planning in order to elaborately create the spaces her clients desire. With over 30 years of experience collaborating with local and national clients, her projects range from modest tenant fit-outs to new headquarter complexes.  Regardless of the size of the project, she offers a high level of expertise in workplace design and corporate space planning to her clients. Heather’s detailed approach allows her to translate clients’ needs and goals into innovative environments.
