Tim Nichols Architect
I help home and business owners who are struggling with a difficult project, specializing in design and construction problems that no one else can solve. This requires the ability to understand the relationship between client personalities and their architectural and construction needs within the natural environment of the project.
As Frank Lloyd Wright said, “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” From site selection to building details, this is the philosophy that guides my work. Contemporary technologies enable me to develop the thermal performance and minimize carbon footprint of structures I design and understand their impact on both the environment and society into the future. This is what is meant by sustainable architecture.
An architectural undergraduate in the 1960’s, I apprenticed with master carpenters and engineers. We built everything from custom homes, to freeway bridges and high-rise buildings.
Later, I founded and operated a design-build firm servicing home owners, business and industry. Today, the focus is architecture. Still, personal connections are the key.
“I’ve done this all my life. Good relationships are more important than anything else that I have built.”
