Heidi Richardson established Richardson Architects in 1984 after a seven year association with William Turnbull Associates of San Francisco, where she was involved in project design and management of both commercial and residential projects. In her own firm, projects have varied from modest residential remodels to large-scale commercial projects.

Her work has been published widely in Architectural Record, Architecture, House and Garden, Home, and Sunset Magazine among others.

Heidi Richardson is involved in every phase of work at Richardson Architects, giving consistency and personal attention to every detail. The product of this attitude has been numerous awards in historic preservation, interiors, seismic renovations, and in the role of Project Architect for several associations with internationally known architects.

Heidi has served as juror for numerous magazine design awards, and as visiting critic and lecturer at the University of California, the University of Sydney, and the San Francisco Center for Architecture and Urban Studies. Heidi served seven years on the Planning Commission for the City of Mill Valley and consequently is very familiar with  how to best navigate the intricacies of the approval processes of local municipalities.
