Background and Philosophy


Nicola Richardson is a Chartered Architect offering a professional and bespoke service to her clients. Nicola set up the practice in 2011 and has more than 12 years experience working within the construction industry as a fully qualified architect. She gained experience whilst working for an award winning practice in Buckinghamshire as an Associate Architect. During that time she worked on a wide range of projects from small residential extensions to large commercial developments, schools and offices.


The practice predominantly works on residential new builds, extensions and conversions, but has a wide understanding and experience in different sectors. By listening to our clients, formulating a comprehensive brief and understanding of the budget constraints, we can offer a bespoke service to each client.

Nicola has a young family and she understands the way modern families want to live. Offering advice on simple house alterations to make cost effective use of the space you already have or advice on the best form of extension or conversion. She has also designed and built new houses, and understands the constraints and complexities of the planning system.


Nicola also teaches Architectural Technology at Oxford Brookes University, which helps her to keep up to date on current ideas and technologies.
