WHO WE ARE

Hocker Design Group (HDG) is an internationally-recognized, award-winning landscape architecture studio based in Dallas, Texas, founded in 2005 by President, Founding Partner, and Design Principal David L. Hocker. HDG responds to unique design challenges with responsible, innovative solutions. At the very core of the firm's work is a mission to establish the landscape as a cohesive link between a project's architecture and site.

Texas and surrounding regions provide endless exposure to a diverse mix of urban, rural and agricultural landscape patterns. HDG's intimate knowledge of these native landscapes is integral to the design process, as it applies to a variety of projects ranging from residential gardens, to parks and urban design. HDG creates spaces that are meticulously detailed and reflect a strong material comprehension relative to site and context. 

The work of HDG includes institutional, corporate, mixed-use, and residential projects across North America. Regardless of typology HDG approaches each project and its unique characteristics with openness to collaboration and design exploration. The work is anchored in connectivity to a region's ecology, natural geographic features, strong programmatic development, and an overarching desire to create beautiful, simple spaces that exhibit the art of restraint.
