Nicholas Hare Architects

Nicholas Hare Architects is an award-winning practice with special experience of designing for education. The scale of our projects ranges from renewals and re-inventions to major new college and university buildings.

We enjoy working collaboratively generating ideas that are inspired by the unique context of the site and our client’s aspirations that we analyse and evaluate together. The emerging designs are always fresh, responsive and thoroughly interrogated. It also means that our projects are quite different although guided by some consistent values and principles. Chief amongst these are a responsibility towards sustainable design and a determination to create buildings that provide exceptional living, learning and working environments.

We are committed to collaboration in our work with other consultants and constructors too as we believe teamwork and the development of fully integrated designs are the key to the successful delivery of projects.
