David Hobbes has over 25 years of architectural experience over a broad range of projects, with a particular interest in heritage conservation. Prior to moving to Canberra, he was involved in the conservation, restoration and alterations and additions to houses and institutional and public buildings in the inner Sydney suburbs and regional NSW. From 2000 – 2003 he was a member of the RAIA (NSW Chapter) Heritage Committee and is currently a member of DOCOMOMO – Documentation & Conservation of buildings sites and neighbourhoods of the Modern Movement.

Since joining Philip Leeson Architects David has gained broad experience, particularly as a consultant to the ACT Heritage Council, in the preparation of Statements of Heritage Significance and Heritage Impact, Conservation Management Plans and general policy formulation, dilapidation audits, and design, documentation and administration of conservation works. David’s architectural and heritage advisory work has led to involvement with a large number of public and community building projects, including the Kingston Former Transport Depot buildings and the recently completed heritage assessment of ACT housing multi-unit properties. As well as the ACT Heritage Advisory Service, David also provides heritage advice on behalf of Palerang Shire, which includes the towns of Braidwood and Bungendore.
