Nicholson Nairn Architects are a chartered RIBA registered practice providing services to both domestic and commercial clients.  Located in Whickham, immediately to the west of Newcastle upon Tyne, our work is predominantly North East based however we undertake projects throughout the UK and beyond with an ever emerging reputation in the West of Scotland and London.


We provide client specific solutions from modest home extensions to multi-million pound commercial projects.  As professional consultants, we have over 25 year’s successful experience in working both as part of a multi-disciplinary design team as well as on our own as client’s lead consultant.  We are diverse in both the projects we embrace and in the range of services we offer.


Our holistic approach has served us well historically, even in times when the construction industry has suffered economically.  Unlike the majority of architectural practices - both locally and nationally - we have bucked the trend during the difficult periods, benefiting from a workload that has allowed us to maintain consistent staffing levels - thus ensuring the quality of our service.  We take great pride in the knowledge our lasting client relationships, alongside our ability to continually attract new clientele, contribute to a platform of longevity many of our competitors struggle to offer.


In June 2017, architect and former employee Chris Barr concluded a Management Buy-In of the practice.  Chris, Garfield, Tony and the team are embarking on an exciting new chapter at Nicholson Nairn Architects and are committed to the continuing success and growth of the practice.
