Heather’s interests in architecture lie at the intersection of new and old and the potential for new construction to age gracefully over time. With a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and both a Master of Architecture and a Master of Science in History and Theory of Architecture from the University of Washington in Seattle, she joined Woodhouse Tinucci Architects in 2015 to pursue a research-based practice that draws influence from the uniqueness of each site and seeks to provoke a heightened awareness of place and its past.
A native of Morton, Illinois, Heather began her career in Chicago at VOA where she worked on the renovation of Wrigley Field from schematic design through construction. At WTa she will continue to exercise her passion for historic landmarks through the adaptive reuse of Congress Theater in Chicago’s Logan Square. Heather is a licensed architect in the state of Illinois. Outside of practice, Heather participates in architectural education and discourse. She has held teaching assistantships in architecture design studio, history, and representation, and continues to volunteer as a critic on design juries, mentor students, and write.
