“When you can see people engaging in your space and those emotions are evoked in people, I think it is a validation of what you do as a designer and what you strive to do” – Hamish Guthrie
Talented interior designer Hamish Guthrie is one half of the acclaimed Australian design duo Hecker Guthrie, whose works have introduced easy sophistication and casual elegance into many a contemporary interior.
With a host of diverse works across hospitality, retail and residential projects, Hecker Guthrie has created a distinctive body of work that is feverishly influential, helping to define local style and contributing to a fresh Australian aesthetic.
