About me - Stewart Nicholson
Our approach to all projects – regardless of scale or budget – is to firstly understand the vision and objectives of the client and then work very hard to explore options to find a solution that exceeds expectations yet remains practical, achievable and lasting.
Our work is modern, but tempered by a love and spirit of place, traditions and materials. We always underpin our work with a clear diagram and concept, that distils the programme and guides design development so that the detail becomes just as important as the whole.
