A strong believer that the best design transcends time, David has worked throughout his twenty-year career to bring new life to historic homes and to create new designs inspired by period styles, with the goal of honoring the past while anticipating the future.
David founded David Heide Design Studio in 1997, with a goal of providing a seamless integration of architecture and interior design services. The Studio prides itself on having a keen eye for detail and craftsmanship, and these attributes have helped the Studio earn numerous awards, including an AIA Honor Award, 18 ASID Awards (including Best In Show), and a Sub-Zero/Wolf Kitchen Design award.
David believes enduring design is one of the the keys to working across many different styles from many different periods:
"As a firm specializing in bringing new life to old homes, our Studio appreciates the ability of Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances to fit into a range of design styles without distracting from the aesthetic. Sub-Zero and Wolf also offer the best in performance — architecture is about both form and function, and Sub-Zero and Wolf are superior in both areas."

The company supports their product line with integrity."
Cooks of Crocus Hill
Karl Benson, President of Cooks of Crocus Hill, on his school’s relationship with Sub-Zero and Wolf:
"We went for the Wolf product shortly after the launch of the residential line. We trusted the Sub-Zero reputation and we have never looked back. We even went so far as to use the red knobs as a design feature in the kitchen redesign. As a school we put these products through a heavy load and they hold their own. Great Performance." www.cooksofcrocushill.com
