The studio of Hecker Guthrie is a multi-disciplinary practice, based in Melbourne Australia. Under the direction of Paul Hecker and Hamish Guthrie, the studio of Hecker Guthrie draws on the foundations and design principles that have been developed over the last decade of practice.
The work of Hecker Guthrie is driven by the principles of authenticity, consideration and enthusiasm. The studio’s approach is to create a unique identity for each project and this authenticity resonates not only in the design solution but in the selection of a natural palette of materials and the sharing of knowledge with craftsmen and women.
Their current body of work rests within the hospitality, residential, retail and commercial sectors. The studio work both locally and abroad and each design draws on their expertise in integrating interiors, building, objects and gardens. Hecker Guthrie understands the profound relationship that all of these disciplines have on creating cohesive, honest and authentic spaces.
A 17 person staff collaboratively share design inspiration and offer a wealth of interdisciplinary skills, drawing upon several areas of expertise: Interior Design, Building Design, Industrial Design, Furniture Design and Styling. All backed up by a strong administrative support team.
