Rob Clocker Named Senior Associate

It gives us great pleasure to formally congratulate Rob Clocker on his promotion to Senior Associate.

Rob joined Hacin in 2014 and brings over 25 years of experience in award-winning renovation and new construction projects. During his time at Hacin, he has completed The Whitney Hotel in Beacon Hill, the IIDA New England award-winning IDEO Cambridge, and two noteworthy Beacon Hill townhomes. Previously a Senior Associate at Perkins+Will in San Francisco, Rob led the revitalization of a 26-story Art Deco office tower, the transformation of a historic hospital to apartments in the Presidio of San Francisco, and the P/A award-winning design for the Calexico Land Port of Entry. As an advocate for stewardship of the built environment, he has spoken publicly on adaptive re-use and sustainable design.

Rob is a registered architect and a Senior Associate at Hacin as well as a LEED Accredited Professional and member of the Ipswich Zoning Board of Appeals. He holds a Master of Architecture degree from MIT and an undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia. In his spare time, Rob enjoys carpentry, travel and photography.

When asked what has been the most rewarding aspect of his career, Rob replied, “When I was in graduate school, I had a non-architect friend who would stop by the studio, look around and say, ‘You architects are in here making drawings and little models all day – which is the same thing my kindergartener does!’ I still think about this often – that even though our work is hard, the hours are long and our clients place a great deal of responsibility in our hands, the fact remains that the core of what we do feels fundamental and rewarding. Creating architecture – those drawings and little models – is about conveying ideas about human relationships and testing solutions for structures we build and want to live in. I’m grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had in my career, and that I get to approach my job with the eyes of a child.”

Join us in congratulating Rob on this much-deserved career milestone. We look forward to witnessing your continued growth and positive contributions to Hacin in the years to come!
