Who we are

Founded in 2008, Nick Hancock Design Studio is a young architectural design practice that builds on the extensive international experience of its founder, Nick Hancock, to create exceptional buildings and structures.

We produce designs of uncompromising quality and technical innovation, with a firm commitment to sustainable design principles. We believe that architecture should inspire and serve people: it should articulate a sense of community and place, and enhance the spaces in which we live, work and relax.

How we work

Passionate and talented, Nick Hancock Design Studio’s team has experience on projects ranging from airports to high-rise buildings. The constant factor in the studio’s projects is an insistence on quality and on sustainable, beautiful architecture.

We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver immaculate finishes, elegant and innovative technical solutions, and on our attention to detail at all stages of the design and construction process. The studio often forms multi-disciplinary design teams for projects. We work with leading engineers, cost consultants, landscape architects and contractors to deliver exceptional quality.
