Brad Heppner has been cultivating his passion for design and architecture from childhood. Always intrigued by construction and fascinated by the historic fabric preserved throughout the Midwest, he received his formal training at one of the nation’s premier schools, University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. During his academic years, he acquired internships in a variety of firms from Manhattan to Atlanta. Graduating in 1996 with degrees in architecture and historic preservation, he relocated to Atlanta where he was a lead designer at Jova Daniels Busby and project manager and lead designer at Summerour & Associates.
Founded in 2005, Bradley E. Heppner Architecture, LLC is known for producing works that are unique to each individual client. Working within a classical design process and calling upon successful works of the past, Brad’s studio contains a vast library of books and resources spanning four centuries which are frequently referenced for design precedents. In adapting the best practices from the past with the necessities of modern living, he employs a collaborative process to the design in which clients are directly involved. In doing so, Brad not only develops homes that are rooted in a traditional foundation, but also are clear reflections of their owners, and serve as legacies for future generations.
Registered in several states and certified through the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, the firm’s catalogue of works spans throughout the Southeast, Midwest, Canada, and Bahamas.
