The firm is headed by Jeff Henneman, AIA, who enlists his 45 years of award winning experience to personally insure that a continuum of innovation and timelessness is branded into every project. The firm’s design services cover a broad range of building types with an emphasis in multifamily residential, mixed use, urban infill and adaptive use.


Henneman & Associates is a full service architecture and land planning design firm centrally located between Baltimore and Washington D.C. in Columbia Maryland. Established in 1994 the firm is comprised of inspired and experienced design professionals who all equally share in their passion for creating sustainable and distinguished design solutions within the built environment.

Henneman & Associates has established itself as a dynamic and emerging design practice by consistently delivering innovative, market sensitive and cost-effective design solutions. Our goal is to achieve a seamless and harmonious integration of the building to the site and ultimately to the overall community it serves.


Our philosophy at Henneman & Associates is to consistently refine and improve each and every design response from project to project rather than applying “pat” solutions to each inherently unique setting. We continually challenge ourselves as well as our Clients and Consultants believing that everyone on the design and development team has the ability to make a positive contribution to each projects overall success.

We seek Clients not jobs. We strive to establish and build long term professional relationships with Clients who share our vision and standards of excellence. Our base of repeat and referred clientele is testimony to the success of the philosophy.

We question everything and assume nothing during the design process to insure that the most innovative and responsive end product will be achieved. We place the enduring qualities of the project first and all else second. We strive to envision each project within the greater context of the overall community it serves – always striving for a harmonious integration of all the parts into the greater whole.


Henneman & Associates believes that intense Client interaction is essential to the success of each project. As such we constantly interface with our Clients throughout the design process to insure we have successfully translated their development goals into the end product.

We totally commit ourselves to achieving seamless integration of land planning and architecture. Each project is viewed and designed as a response to the unique features and influences of their setting and not the reverse of contorting and manipulating the site to yield to recycled architectural product.

Our approach of incorporating intensive Client interaction, the sensitive blending of building to site and committing the highest levels of experience from beginning to end has a proven record of producing added value to each project designed by Henneman & Associates.
