Juliet Hernandez-Eli is the founding partner of her eponymous architecture firm based in New York City.

Prior to HE, Juliet developed a unique understanding of the design and construction process as an owner; for seven years, Juliet was an owner’s representative for a confidential company developing both residential and office work in New York. As a result, Juliet thinks like an owner. She approaches each project with a sympathetic eye towards balancing aspiration and risk.

Her firm’s clientele - families, businesses, developers, institutions and public agencies - are always experiencing change; Juliet addresses this through architecture that accommodates lifestyles, growth, market alignments, corporate retention, and public accessibility.

The breadth of her experience includes nearly half-a-million square feet of residential, commercial and amenity spaces spanning work for private homeowners, Avalon Bay, Aby Rosen/RFR, and Samsung among many others.

She received her Bachelor of Arts from Princeton University and a Master in Architecture from Harvard University. She has taught design at Harvard University, Pratt Institute, and Boston Architectural College; she was recently named a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at UC Berkeley. Her work has been published in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Architecture Magazine as well as books by Princeton Architecture Press and Actar Publishing. Juliet is a registered architect in the state of New York.
