David Hocker ventured into business in late 2004 with a clear vision - beautiful articulation of the “spaces between” that exude meaningful connection to region and place for the people who inhabit them. In 13 short years Hocker Design Group (HDG) has grown into a focused design firm with a succinct point of view that responds to architecture, site ecology, and geographic features with appropriately scaled designs of exhibited restraint. A commitment to provide responsible and innovative solutions has earned the small firm 30-plus design awards and accolades in national and international publications.
