In the last 50 years, a lot has changed. Then again, much has stayed the same. Names have changed. Our reputation hasn’t. Relationships change, but not our commitment. So, what’s different as we enter the next half-century? Not much – and also everything.

Our new name, HEDK, is less about the names or the letters, and more about what they stand for. It’s about pursuing the potential and promise that lies beyond. 


In 1968, HEDK Architects was established as an architectural partnership which has provided professional design services for half a century through a wide range of building types and planning assignments. Since then, HEDK Architects has designed almost 1 million dwelling units, multiple office buildings, hotels and hospitality, space planning, and master planning for several top 100 corporate real estate firms nationwide.


We believe the best leaders have an innate desire to serve others. To that end, our leadership has a proven track record of providing time-tested business savvy, impressive design integration, successful technical solutions, anticipating problems with a quick resolution, and the effective management of projects and processes.


We encourage creative collaboration to not only meet the expectations of our clients, but endeavor to exceed them. We are keenly aware that like the environments we design, HEDK Architects is only as good as the sum of its parts: its people. It’s our people that take our clients beyond expectations.


We are passionate about going Beyond Expectations at every level of the development process: site analysis, land planning, building design, city codes/permit facilitation, construction documentation, including coordination with the team’s professional consultants, civil engineers, landscape architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, interior design, and coordination with contracting budgeting, the entire process, and delivery of today’s most sophisticated multifamily developments. HEDK Architects has been designing award winning living and working environments since 1968. The firm’s capabilities include; but is not limited to luxury market rate, low to mid-rise / high-rise multi-family, mixed use, commercial, adaptive/reuse, and various forms of multifamily housing including student housing, independent senior living, assisted, memory care, and 4% and 9% tax credit affordable housing. We are expert specialists in HUD 221 (d)(4) financed developments thought the United States.
