Build Interior Design Awards 2017

Build 2017 Interior Design Awards 30 pecialising in residential, education and conservation developments, Nick Baker Architects is a dedicated team of 10 that is focused on the pursuit of quality, from the initial concept design through to the delivery of the completed building. Interior Design is a blend of complex forces, from the needs dictated by individuals to the performance of building materials, and Nick Baker Architects aims to ensure that all of these elements come together to produce the outcome their clients need. Testimony to this dedication to quality is the fact that most of the practice’s work comes as a result of repeat business, and the firm have a number of established clients including property developers, private individuals, and UK Diocesan Boards of Education for Schools as well as London Boroughs. Nick explains how the firm aims to understand and meet their clients’ needs right from the start of the project. “Here at Nick Baker Architects we believe there is design opportunity in every project and at every stage in the process. Understanding the culture, climate and identity of a place is key to a projects success. Every project is subject to ongoing in house design reviews, this process of demanding design selection ensures that the quality is maintained across all of our work. It is quality, aspiration and investigative thought that we apply to each project that gives the practice its identity” Staying at the forefront of the latest industry developments is crucial to ensuring that clients receive the very best outcome for their project, as often their views can be clouded by the latest trends and the newest techniques may suit their project more than outdated concepts. As such Nick Baker Architects works hard to offer the very latest services and solutions, as Nick is keen to emphasise. “In order to remain at the cutting edge of the architecture market we operate a strict schedule of in office internal design reviews, continuous professional development seminars, with staff regularly attending local and national design and technical expos, RIBA CPDs and courses specific to particular projects as well as conservation workshops. Our central London location in Clerkenwell, London, Europe’s most densely populated design hub, provides great opportunities to keep up to date with the latest creative and technical developments.” This combination of innovation and quality will help steer Nick Baker Architects to future success, as Nick concludes. “It is my belief that our future success will come as a product of the principles which have sustained us to date. We intend to allow the practice to grow organically, maintaining the same quality bespoke service for our clients as our involvement in larger projects increases, maintaining our emphasis on design quality and detailing through design review and maintaining our focus on residential, education and conservation sections. “In the short term we intend to fully embrace the opportunities for further innovation and closer collaboration with consultants from the rollout and development of BIM technologies.” Best Architectural Refurbishment - UK Nick Baker Architects are a well-established architectural and interior design consultancy based in central London.
