Bringing over 20 years of expertise in urban design and landscape architecture to the award-winning firm, Nick’s role will involve the delivery of a credible, sustainable approach to the built environment associated with the projects Space delivers.
Nick joined the Space team after spending the last 11 years at SLR Newcastle, where he climbed the ranks from associate landscape architect to director. Prior to this, he spent time at a number of well-regarded landscape architecture firms and three years at Sunderland City Council as their principal landscape architect.
Throughout this time, Nick demonstrated a proven track record and passion for high quality design. He counts urban design and landscape masterplanning amongst his key skills as well as sustainable design, public realm design and site reclamation landform design.
With a focus on increasing our offer of services to clients and embracing new technologies, Nick, alongside newly-recruited architectural visualiser Andy Forbes, will play a key role in the future of Space through the delivery of projects that incorporate green architecture in order to address climate change.
Upon joining Space in August, Nick said: “What always impressed me (about Space) is that they are a North East company with a national presence who are passionate about design and have a vision to make a positive impact on our built environment through their projects.
“They have completed some incredible projects and are very well respected both locally and nationally and I’m delighted to be a part of their management team and hope to drive the business forward in a new direction.”
Nick aims to bring the company to the forefront of environmental architecture by embracing new technologies and applying them to the external environment. He also envisions working with a diverse client base - containing both national and international clients – while helping Space to continue moving forward as an exciting, award-winning leader in the fields of architecture and urban design.
One of the first projects Nick will be working on is the ‘Living Office’, a project centred around biophilic design and its impact on improving the working environment within an office.
