Nick is a registered architect with a strong interest in the cultural, social, and environmental aspects of architecture.

His interests are reflected in his diverse range of project experience, including residential, commercial, hospitality, community, and industrial projects. Before joining Studio Pacific in 2018, Nick honed his skills at a Melbourne-based practice, specialising in residential, hospitality, and cultural projects.

Over the past few years, Nick has gained valuable experience working with mass timber through his involvement in the Air New Zealand Hangar 4 project. In addition to his contributions to the hangar, Nick found leading the intricate programming and spatial design of the maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities to be a rewarding challenge.

Nick has had the privilege of working on several projects in partnership with mana whenua. His design approach for the Enabling Structure connecting the National Library to the new Archives building bridge prioritised a thorough co-design process, ensuring robust integration of cultural and functional elements across the project. Nick has been involved in every stage of the project’s design and currently serves as the Site Architect during construction.
