H. Hendy Associates

H. Hendy Associates began in 1980, when we rented San Antonio Wine Cellars in Newport Beach for $100 a month. The first year of business was full of blind optimism. Before then, interior architecture was a relatively new industry.
   
Our first tag line was: “Business objectivity and design sensibility allows for great office design.” During our early years, we worked very closely with industrial engineers, trying to make office space user-friendly for employees. Today, office-space trends are undergoing a huge transformation, and technology has “untethered” employees, leading them to a work-anywhere environment.

Status:
Happily single. Proud fanatical mother of one son presently attending the University of Oregon

Best vacation: Spending time in Russia in 1982 while the country was under Communist rule. I had just finished Ayn Rand’s first novel, and it was exactly as she had described it.

The city where you’d love to live but probably won’t: New York City

Favorite artist or designer: Leonardo DaVinci

Best concert: Led Zeppelin’s 1968 opening tour with Jeff Foretell

The last meal before I die:
Freshly baked double-fudge chocolate-raspberry cake – pure decadence!

A skill you’d love to have:
To be able to sing like Celine Dion or play a guitar like a rock star.

Most amazing thing I’ve ever done: Went for a ride in an old Russian fighter jet, an L39. I loved the low altitude and high-speed turns!

Favorite workout: Whatever feels like play that involves water: body surfing, waterskiing, mud run

First taste-of-success moment: In the mid-’80s, we redesigned AirTouch Communications’ 207,000-square-foot space. They became a client for the next 15 years. AirTouch, which hadn’t yet designed cellphones, later became Verizon Wireless. H. Hendy Associates competed with global firms – and won.
