Since we launched in 1996, Hoefer Welker has partnered with clients to create designs that do more: create more connections, have more impact on the community and use our collective resources more responsibly. 

We’re known for our interdisciplinary approach to projects, incorporating architecture, interior design and engineering into our plans. That holistic approach to design leads to meaningful collaborations with our clients, delivering projects that align with business goals and exceed expectations.  

Plus, we’re a great place to work. (And we’ve got the “Best Places to Work” award to prove it.)  

Today, we’ve expanded our innovative methodology to Dallas and Jacksonville, Florida, where we continue to work with clients in healthcare, higher education, government and commercial sectors.  

Though our work stretches from coast-to-coast and across sectors, regardless of the project, we’re always committed to innovation, integrity – and doing more.
