Our Story

Read More

Our diversified practice meets design challenges that often require extensive research and innovation. We believe in the demonstration of the identity of the client, not the identity of our designers. We pride ourselves in our ability to produce architecture of a timeless value that represents the client's standing in the community and their overall image. Our diversity and flexibility make us uniquely qualified to solve complex problems with minimal resources and within stringent time lines.

Our designs are sometimes simple and understated; others hearkened to a traditional history of a client, but all meet the demands of the building program with an appropriate, fresh and enduring response. The result is a space that reflects your culture and needs - a space that is not only functional but provides a comfortable, flexible environment.

Hobbs+Black was formed in 1965 when William S. Hobbs realized his high school dream and established his own architecture firm. The firm was soon ready to grow and in 1967, Mr. Hobbs teamed up with designer, Richard Black. The two men shared a common business philosophy that every client is important and should always be treated and approached as such. In 1968 the firm added "+ Black" to its name and a terrific business partnership and great friendship started.
