Thom Hacker. Hacker Architects

Hacker Architects is an architecture & planning firm founded by Thom Hacker in 1983. The studio provides architectural and design services. They believe that architecture is best when it’s an honest expression of the people and institutions it serves, when it interacts dynamically with its surroundings, makes humble use of the earth’s resources, and has an understated dignity based on carefully crafted construction and the natural beauty of materials.

More than a craft or practice, Hacker sees architecture as a calling to create beauty and serve humanity, requiring deepest listening, questioning, curiosity and engagement.
