The founder and principal, Brian Heberling, has extensive experience with designing and building beautiful modern homes throughout the Seattle region. His keen design sensibilities and broad engineering skills result in site-specific, cutting-edge projects that win awards.

Growing up in a Mid-Century Modern home on Lake Sammamish, Brian has always been avidly interested in architectural design, with his innovative design work gaining broad attention. In 2001, while living in LA, Brian’s Beverly Boulevard tanning salon was cited by the prestigious Architectural Record as one of six top commercial interior spaces in the world. This was just one of several tanning salons Brian owned and designed that were far outside the mainstream, garnering attention in the LA Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and other media.

Brian’s design sensibilities first manifested in college, as he produced and managed a 10-piece rock ‘n’ roll and R&B horn band, combining visual artistry and design with the arrangements of music, stage and lights to create a cohesive look and sound. Later, living in LA, he was subsequently involved with major stadium shows in venues throughout North America and Europe, for clients including Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Prince, U2, Guns N Roses and others.

Brian returned to Seattle in 2001 and expanded his business sphere, forming Lago Mar properties also entering into the vacation rental scene in the Oregon coast town of Manzanita. Brian also became engaged in the real estate arena as he developed and sold homes throughout the Seattle area.

Brian founded reModerned Homes with the vision of creating fun, highly functional living spaces. He is driven by a desire to reach the highest and best use of both the site and the structure, while incorporating modern technological innovations and remaining true to green environmental standards.

I appreciate the difficulty and artistry of architecture and design, and find that having control of an entire project, from pre-design through construction, is very rewarding—it’s part of what drives me.

Clean and simple designs are key to my work. Equally important, especially in the Pacific Northwest, is the conceptualization of how light interacts with the space, and I analyze this element prior to setting pen to paper.

Throughout the design and build process, I believe strongly in utilizing environmentally friendly products. I layer in leading edge technological innovations, to create residences with high functionality and elegant interfaces.
