Nick Hacking RIBA Partner
Nick leads significant residential-led regeneration projects as well as the practice’s research into the design and delivery of homes.
Nick is passionate about the positive social influence that well-designed spaces and buildings can have on communities, with this achieved by rigorous approach to all project stages. The creation of new neighbourhoods that Nick oversees often involves weaving together homes with a range of different typologies and facilities.
Due to the increasing importance of convergence, Nick’s work often engages with key industry issues such as the changing nature of work, the future of the high-street and maximising the value of public realm. The latter is a particularly pertinent theme of our residential work, with Nick leading engagement sessions with local communities and stakeholders to ensure new public spaces make a meaningful civic contribution.
Running in parallel with Nick’s project work are numerous research initiatives. These are relevant to all stages of a design – from experimentation with housing concepts and exploring new typologies to identifying innovative forms of construction that raise the design quality whilst improving building performance.
