We are proud to announce the promotions of three colleagues to associate. These leaders embody Hennebery Eddy Architects’ commitment to designs that inspire, embrace, and renew the communities they serve.

Pearl Kang, AIA, is a versatile designer with more than a decade of experience on award-winning, technically complex commercial and institutional projects. She has successfully advanced Hennebery Eddy’s academic programming process, collaborating with diverse project stakeholders and user groups to optimize space use and ensure project goals and user needs are reflected in every aspect of design. Pearl supports creative design exploration through the firm’s Design Desk, a platform for design exchange, and serves on the firm’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, advocating for a more equitable design and global community. Pearl’s recent projects include the Clark College Boschma Campus Advanced Manufacturing Center, Lane Community College Industry & Trades Education Center, and Montana State University Gianforte Hall.

Leif Halverson, AIA, has more than two decades of design and master planning experience. At Hennebery Eddy, he focuses on cultural and aviation projects and supports design conversations across the office. His passion for design, design concept iteration, and developing details has shaped his thoughtful approach to architecture and developed his awareness of the ways architecture can impact the creation and display of art, both in museum and gallery spaces as well as in public places. Leif is a member of the design team for the new Mark Rothko Pavilion at the Portland Art Museum and a key member of the design team for the Boardman Rural Fire Protection District Station 81, currently in construction and developed via progressive design-build project delivery. He is currently involved in several projects at Portland International Airport and Seattle Tacoma International Airport. Leif helps lead Hennebery Eddy’s Design Desk initiative, is a member of Hennebery Eddy’s Building Enclosure Committee, and proactively mentors emerging professionals.

Heather Crane, AIA, is an historical architect leading preservation, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse projects from historic structure assessment through construction. Her exceptional technical development and detailing skills seamlessly integrate modern systems into historic structures. Heather is a member of the firm’s Historic Resources Group and has advanced the firm’s engagement with the National Park Service through extensive work in Yellowstone National Park, where she managed the condition assessment and prepared construction documents for the exterior rehabilitation of 17 contributing structures within two National Historic Districts. Heather is also currently involved with projects in Yosemite National Park and Mesa Verde National Park. She serves on Hennebery Eddy’s Building Enclosure Committee and is active in AIA San Diego and the La Jolla Historical Society.
