Alicia and Eva met while working for tastemaker and influential designer, Ken Fulk. While leading residential and hospitality projects, Eva and Alicia developed a close friendship and decided to chase a life-long dream by opening their own firm in 2015. As studioHEIMAT enters its eighth year, Alicia and Eva manage a growing team of designers while collaborating with architects, builders, and artisans to create spaces that reflect their clients. Inspired by the beauty of northern California, and discovering old and new on their travels, studioHEIMAT continues to be at the forefront of the interior design industry in San Francisco.
Hailing from the beautiful country of Switzerland, Eva had both a picturesque and an academically rigorous upbringing. Having come to America to pursue higher education, Eva quickly fell in love with the West Coast and San Diego, where she studied English. Following her passion, she soon accepted an 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. After graduation, the West Coast called to her again, this time to 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.
Each with a decade of experience in the industry, Eva and Alicia are guided by the goal of evoking soulful spaces through clean lines, elevating the status quo, and adding an edginess to each project. studioHEIMAT continues to grow with their sophisticated and design savvy clients, and thrives when collaborating with clients to create thoughtful, comfortable, and beautiful spaces that give that sense of well being - that feeling of HEIMAT.
