Jonathan Heuer, project manager
A native of southwestern Pennsylvania, Jonathan attended University of California, Berkeley earning a Bachelors of Arts in Architecture from the College of Environmental Design, and a minor in German.

Along the way he found himself teaching math and architecture and coaching at a private high school in Berkeley, CA before coming back to architecture full time. He is excited to be back in the design world and exploring all it has to offer. When not at work, he can be found playing his guitar, working out, drinking too much coffee, and spending quality time with his partner and their dog.
Naomi Rojas, project designer
Naomi was born in Peru, and her diverse background has allowed her to develop a deep interest and understanding of the various architectural planning and design methods. She moved to San Francisco to pursue her Bachelor of Architecture at the Academy of Art University, and joined Raumfabrik architecture + interiors after graduating in 2020. In her professional career she developed an understanding of design as an interdisciplinary, collective effort to respond to contemporary needs. Naomi believes great design results from collaborative work combined with passionate, innovative, and sensitive values that transform a place into a unique solution (there might be a better word there but not sure which). She is currently pursuing a master's degree in software design, and her outside interests include technology, design, and animals.
