Nicholson Nairn Architects are a chartered RIBA registered practice providing services to both commercial and residential clients.  We have been in practice for over 30 years, provide high quality architectural design, continuously diversifying to suit an everchanging industry.


NNA was formed in 1991 by Tony Nicholson and Garfield Nairn to provide design, architecture, planning and building services throughout the North-East of England.   With Studios in both the North East and Yorkshire, we undertake projects throughout the UK.  Whilst expanding geographically we maintain our strong northern presence – the bedrock to our growing and forward thinking business.


We provide client specific solutions from modest home extensions to multi-million pound commercial projects. We are strategically diverse and our work centres around our client focused ethos.


Our team provide an outstanding client service; architecturally strong, without being precious.  We are versatile, commercially aware, understand that the client comes first and that the project is theirs.


Our long lasting relationships, alongside our ability to attract new clientele, contribute to a platform of longevity and robustness.  We balance the well-established nature of the practice with a fresh outlook, continually adapting to suit the evolving social, cultural, commercial and economic landscape.
