Our Firm

The firm, established in 1994, is comprised of experienced design professionals who equally share in their PASSION for creating sustainable and distinguished design solutions within the built environment


The firm is headed by Jeff Henneman who enlists over 40 years of award winning experience into each project to personally insure that a continuum of innovation is branded into every project. The firm’s design services cover a broad range of building types with an emphasis in multifamily residential, mixed use, commercial office/retail, urban infill and adaptive re-use.


Henneman + Associates has established itself as a dynamic and emerging design practice by consistently delivering innovative, market sensitive and cost-effective design solutions. Our goal is to achieve a seamless and harmonious integration of building to the site and to the overall community it serves.




Our philosophy at Henneman + Associates is to consistently refine and improve on each and every design solution from project to project to each inherently unique setting.


We continually challenge ourselves and our Clients throughout the design process believing that everyone on the development team can make a positive contribution to each project’s overall success.


We seek Clients, not jobs. We strive to establish and build long term professional relationships with Clients who share our vision and standards. Our base of repeat and referred clientele is testimony to the success of our philosophy.


  • We question everything and assume nothing.
  • We believe the process should be as fun and rewarding as the end product.
  • We place the enduring qualities of the project first.
  • We are not marketing slick - we deliver what we commit to.


We view each project in the greater context of the overall community it serves – always striving for a harmonious integration of all of the parts into the greater whole.




Henneman + Associates believes that intense Client interaction is essential to the success of each project. We constantly interface with our Clients throughout the design process to insure we have successfully translated their development goals into the end product.


We commit ourselves to achieving a seamless integration of land planning and architecture. Each project is viewed and designed as a response to the unique features and influences of its setting as opposed to contorting and manipulating the site to yield to recycled architectural product.


We incorporate principal level involvement throughout the entire design process to insure that this “seasoned expertise” is utilized on every project. This approach results in a continuum of experience through each phase of the design.


Our approach of intensive Client interaction, the sensitive blending of building to site and committing the highest levels of experience from beginning to end has resulted in a proven record of producing added value to each and every project designed by Henneman + Associates.
