Here’s What Matters

We care about knowing and developing a deep level of trust with our clients. It’s important to us to be helpful guides in what can be an overwhelming process, so we take the time to make sure our clients have their questions answered, placing an emphasis on genuinely getting to know their communication style and needs.

When the natural rhythms of daily life—habits, quirks, routines, and lifestyle—are joined with the transformative power of nature, there is a boost to physical and mental well-being. By strategically employing sunlight, views, and natural ventilation, we are able to bring the positive benefits of the outdoors inside.

Uniquely designed homes have the potential to lift spirits, create daily routine efficiency, and cultivate positive mental and physical health habits. Aspiring to make more than aesthetic changes to a property, our thoughtful designs make an impact on our clients’ quality of life.


Process Matched with Passion

We design living spaces in harmony with the rugged beauty of nature, empowering our clients to experience the benefits of an intentionally designed home.


Unearthing imagination

There’s more to architecture than just putting a roof over someone’s head. At Hedda, our whole process is formed around getting to know our clients. We discover who they really are, then create something that flows effortlessly with them and the landscape they have chosen to live in. We guide our clients through a process that can be overwhelming, helping them develop their imagination to see what is possible for their own unique space. This is our approach, and it’s also our passion.

For Tara, architecture is not just a passion—it’s a way of life fueled by the landscapes that stir her senses. She had two goals while growing up. The first was to become an architect and the second was to live where she plays. The foundation of Hedda is the exciting accomplishment of these goals.

Tara’s passion for architecture started early. Her mom still has the first home she designed—when she was only two years old. As she has continued to learn and hone her craft, she has drawn inspiration from world wonders like the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu, from architects like Mies van der Rohe and Tadao Ando, as well as from her studies of psychology and feng shui.

After a little global soul-searching—in 29 countries on six continents, to be exact—Tara narrowed in on how she could best share her life-long developed skill of architecture.

She now resides along the shores of Donner Lake, filling her days with skiing on water or snow, multi-day hikes, and, her favorite, adrenaline-filled two-wheel adventures—on the days she’s not designing homes, that is.

Tara’s adventurous spirit and passion saturate her work in innovative and creative ways.



Getting to know you is the first and most important step in designing a space that is an extension of your lifestyle.
