Hocking Heritage Studio (HHS), the new name for Hocking Planning and Architecture, is an award winning multi-disciplinary practice specialising in heritage and conservation, planning, urban design and architecture. Established in 1986 the practice’s approach is based on in-depth research into issues that influence studies and projects, application of industry’s best practices and to reconcile the divergent needs of stakeholders, communities, specialist disciplines, heritage planning and building agencies into benchmark standard outcomes.

As a leading researcher in the form and structure of settlements and urban development in Western Australia, HHS has been involved with various studies of urban villages, historic development patterns of inner suburbs and the application of principles of social and environmental sustainability to urban development. HHS’s strength in heritage and planning processes is supported by our knowledge of the patterns of historic environments and the built fabric technology of historic places.

Our capability to engage in multi faceted projects spanning across heritage, planning, architecture and urban design disciplines has been acknowledged by clients and peers and is demonstrated by the number of major awards and commendations at state and national levels.
