We think long-term — from our design approach to our relationships. Hennebery Eddy’s Portland studio supports the firm’s full range of market sectors, services, and project types. Through this work, our team builds successful, long-term relationships with staff, clients, and partners for the enduring success of all.
Hennebery Eddy is headquartered in downtown Portland and has been since its founding. For 30+ years, we have remained committed to our city and its sustainable, healthy development. Portland is recognized as a beacon for urban planning, renowned for sustainable design, thoughtful growth, and celebration of the pedestrian experience. Through project work and community service, we continue to advocate for net-positive design solutions, the sustainable preservation of our cultural and historic resources, and a dense and vibrant urban core where people can thrive.
Our approach to urban planning and design promotes an active and pedestrian-oriented street-level environment. We take personal ownership of our city’s sustainable development; for the past 20 years, our staff have continually served on design, historic landmarks, planning, and sustainability commissions in Portland and the metro area.
Inspired by long-term thinking and our Northwest surrounding, we strive not just to maintain the integrity of our natural and built environment, but to improve it. Our net-positive approach emphasizes healthy, efficient, and adaptive designs that connect people to nature and contribute to a regenerative future. Learn more
Led by a team of regional experts, we remain on the forefront of preservation best practices. Our Historic Resources Group has been vital to the growth of the firm and our focus on respecting and retaining the historic integrity of our cultural resources while reinvigorating and rehabilitating them for long-term use.

We apply what we’ve learned in the Northwest to communities throughout the region — and beyond. Our Portland-based team’s planning, preservation, and design work includes partnership with federal agencies like the National Park Service and General Services Administration, higher education campuses in several states, and the leading regional airports in the West. With technological and subject-matter expertise, our Portland headquarters supports the broader firm.

In 1992, partners Stephen J. Hennebery and Timothy R. Eddy founded a Portland design firm driven by these core values: innovative design, responsive service, and staff who take ownership in their work. Following Steve’s sudden passing in 1998, Hennebery Eddy Architects has continued to grow and evolve while remaining true to its aspirational beginnings. An entrepreneurial spirit and love affair with the outdoors unite our team. Here, we commute by bike and bus, hike rain or shine, indulge in the city’s celebrated dining scene, and are long-time season ticket holders for the Portland Timbers and Thorns. We actively support the civic, cultural, and industry organizations making a difference in our city and region such as the Oregon Food Bank and Architecture Foundation of Oregon. And we approach design as a team sport — where all team members are invited to contribute.
Located in the historic Pittock Block in Portland’s West End, our Portland studio is our largest office and firm hub. See yourself in the Rose City for the opportunity to work on a broad range of projects — from commercial renovations helping revitalize downtown to the rehabilitation of National Historic Landmarks, both local and in national parks throughout the West.Opportunities
