Jack Himmelheber

After joining Weber Thompson in 2013, Jack quickly established himself as a versatile powerhouse, ushering through the design of several Seattle high rises while assisting on several in-house graphic design tasks. He now works in the Commercial Office studio, most recently on the award-winning Cedar Speedster project in Fremont. Jack assisted the project in design, later leading it through construction, and gained valuable knowledge in mass timber buildings.

Spending eight years working on high rises in China, the Middle East and India, made Jack eager to work on high rises that would affect his local skyline. For these projects, Jack works from design concept to completion moving between CAD, computer modeling, hand sketches and physical models to refine elements, check for accuracy and test the design’s aesthetic quality, efficiency and pragmatism. 

In addition to architecture, Jack also has a passion for urban design. He loves musing about the connections between human scale, building scale and city scale. He believes that when the disciplines of architecture and urban design intersect, a higher quality space is created. For him, the ultimate goal is increasing public use and allowing for a diverse group of users living, working and playing in equity.

A LEED Accredited Professional, Jack also believes in architecture as a catalyst for environmental stewardship, but he’s still a humanist. He believes that through design, the built and natural worlds can exist in harmony.

A native of Maryland, where he earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees, Jack spends his spare time trying new Seattle restaurants, indulging his love for backcountry skiing, and cycling.
