About Amanda

My name is Amanda Patterson Hickam, Owner and Lead Designer at Harper Harris Design Studio, which is named after my daughters, Jane Harris (7) and Harper (4).

After graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from Auburn University in 2006, I spent the next 12 years in Atlanta working at commercial architecture firms, focusing most of my career on the multifamily market.  I have collaborated with many well-respected designers, contractors, and developers to complete multifamily and hospitality projects all over the southeast.  I also simultaneously completed several residential side projects which I thoroughly enjoyed, and ultimately discovered a passion.  

I am a Birmingham native, and I recently moved back with my husband and our two little girls.  Now is the perfect time and place to share my professional design knowledge with my community, as I am now shifting my focus to smaller scale residential projects.

Our homes are meant to serve as a place for families and friends to gather and connect.  To make memories.  To raise our children.  To live and thrive. 

This is where real life happens. 

Because of Amanda’s extensive architectural experience on large scale multi family projects, she is able to lead her team with an edge in designing efficiently and effectively.
