Rick Keating partners with HED

Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED) is pleased to announce Richard Keating, FAIA and HED have joined forces.

A recognized leader in design, Keating brings vast experience as a designer on large-scale, complex project types, including corporate headquarters and office buildings; high-rise residential buildings; research facilities; and retail centers.

Keating began his career with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) in Chicago and went on to become the youngest partner in the firm’s history and eventually assumed leadership of its Los Angeles office.  After 23 years with SOM, Keating opened his own practice — Keating Architecture.

Keating played a key design role on high-profile projects across the U.S., including the 52-story Gas Company Tower in Los Angeles; the 40-story One South Dearborn corporate office building in Chicago; the recently renovated 525 Market, the third largest building in the City of San Francisco; the ultra-luxurious 32-unit Beverly West Condominiums in Los Angeles; and Lear Corporation’s Headquarters and Campus in Southfield, Michigan.

Based in Los Angeles, Keating will provide design consultation services for all of HED’s five offices.

“We are looking forward to leveraging Rick’s extensive design experience across the United States to continue to grow our practice nationally,” said J. Peter Devereaux, Chief Executive officer of HED.  “Rick’s experience designing complex urban high-rise office and residential buildings as well as corporate headquarters projects in the cities that as HED has offices both complement and enhance our portfolio.  As partners on several recent pursuits, we saw first-hand the knowledge and passion he has for design excellence. We’re excited to join forces.”

Keating will focus on design excellence and continue to be a thought leader on design within HED’s Corporate & Commercial practice.
