Today, I’ll begin with a post that will be a regular feature on Airoom’s blog, called “Meet the Designers.”  Each post will highlight one member of our family of designers, giving you a small insight into their background, specialties, and life outside of architecture and building.


Robert Heilman:

2010 marks Bob’s tenth year at Airoom.  Bob holds both a Bachelors and Master of Architecture from the Univ. of Il – Champaign – Urbana and became a Licensed Architect in 1993. He is also a Certified Green Builder.

Before joining Airoom, Bob held positions in project development for companies such as White Hen Pantry, Hertz, Gateway, Hallmark, etc. leading new store and facility project creation, but residential work has always been his passion.

“I feel that over the last ten years I have excelled at understanding client’s needs/wants and translating those wishes into functionally beautiful projects!  I especially like kitchen and family room design as these spaces truly are the heart of the home!”


Bob’s wife, Sheila and two daughters, Kelsey and Erin have resided in Oak Park for the last 20 years.  They love the community and are now in the midst of their third home renovation project!  You can say it’s a hobby that the whole family can enjoy!  When time allows you can find Bob and his family in northern Wisconsin sitting on a dock watching the loons and eagles.
