Mark Hoesterey, AIA, is a founding Principal and Designer at Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects, PLLC. Shortly after receiving his Masters of Architectural Design from Texas Tech University, Mark began building his arsenal of experience by working in Colorado, Austin, and finally settling down in Dallas. Prior to launching Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects, Mark worked for a small commercial architecture firm where he designed a variety of commercial projects of varying scale. Mark then followed his true passion for smaller, more “personal scale” project types and joined a small, growing, residential architecture firm. In 2005 Mark, David Stocker, and Enrique Montenegro formed Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects, focusing on their shared passion for architecture and design.
With licenses in Texas, Colorado, Utah and Florida, Mark enjoys a wide variety of work. Mark enjoys the collaborative approach to design on residential and boutique commercial projects around the country. Mark’s love for the outdoors make custom ranches, lake houses, and mountain homes top contenders for his favorite projects. Mark’s design process does not cater to one style but instead focuses on certain principles such as form, scale, light, and proper proportion, as well as exploring connections between people, the indoor and outdoor environments, and materials. With this lens, Mark’s designs are able to transcend specific styles and cater to the client’s desires and needs.
Mark’s gifts in master planning as well as design are integral in shaping both his vision as an architect and involvement in the community. His talents and gifts have bled into his volunteer work as President of the White Rock Lake Conservancy and have driven his efforts to raise significant private funds for its restoration efforts of historic structures around the lake. In addition to the Conservancy, Mark has served on various boards such as Texas Tech Architectural Alumni Association, Dallas Center for Architecture, St. Thomas Aquinas Holy Name Society, among other community organizations. Mark gets inspiration and enjoyment from spending time outdoors and on the water with his wife and two children and from coaching his son’s baseball team.
Mark is a member of Texas Society of Architects, U.S. Green Building Council, NCARB, and the American Institute of Architects.
