HAMISH GUTHRIE | PAUL HECKER

As one of the founding directors of Hecker Guthrie, Hamish Guthrie is often considered the taller and quieter of the pair. His calm demeanour lends itself to a considered approach to design which has resulted in a strong portfolio of much publicised and well awarded projects in the hospitality, retail, commercial and residential sectors.

Paul Hecker is the other founding Directors of Hecker Guthrie and his enthusiasm for design and how people interact with interior spaces has only strengthened over his 20 plus years in the industry. Within the studio, Paul is a sound voice and worthy commentator on not just design, but life, fashion, politics and film.
