Alicia and Eva met while working in San Francisco, for tastemaker and influential designer Ken Fulk as a Project Manager and Designer. While working on, and later leading, numerous private residential projects, commercial and hospitality spaces, and turning out their fair share of newsworthy events at the Magic Factory and beyond- Eva and Alicia developed a close friendship and decided to chase a life-long dream they each had individually - to become entrepreneurs - and went into business together. In early 2015, studio HEIMAT came to fruition.
Hailing from the beautiful country of Switzerland, Eva had a both a picturesque and academically rigorous upbringing. Having come to America at the age of 18 to study English, Eva quickly fell in love with the west coast and San Diego. She soon accepted the offer to study Interior Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and found a wonderful community of artisans, professors, and designers that would prove supportive later in her career. After graduation, the west coast called to her again, this time, it was San Francisco. With a big heart, a keen eye for design details, and the technical knowledge to bring her vision to reality, Eva is a powerhouse designer.
A native to the Bay Area, Alicia was born and raised in San Jose, CA. She studied Textiles & Clothing, and Economics at the University of California, Davis, before later going on to study Interior Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, San Francisco. A textiles- obsessed travel lover with a great eye, and an enthusiasm for what is possible, Alicia’s vision guides the firm towards its next endeavors.
As studio HEIMAT begins their 4th year, Alicia and Eva are managing their growing team of designers, and working with their extended team of contractors, architects, and artisans to achieve spaces that reflect their clients. Guided by their emerging signature style of delivering clean lines, elevating the status quo, and adding an edginess to each project, Alicia & Eva grow with their sophisticated, tech savvy clients. Always open to new techniques and technology, studio HEIMAT continues to be at the forefront of the Interior Design industry in the Bay Area.
