NO Architecture


NO is the Nichols Office of Architecture, Inc., a full-service architecture and interior design company. NO projects show a concern for the quality of material detailing, always natural light and shadows, a sense of the pragmatic and the open possibilities of conceptual and collaborative thinking. NO Architecture began on January 1st, 2008. The work, however, has been produced independently and collaboratively over the last 20 years.

NO Architecture is a place for confronting the unknown. NO can help work out doubt and uncertainty through courage and conviction. NO’s work is defined not by preconceptions, but by a true sense of open collaboration. It is the default position of a blank sheet of paper.

NO is empty, null, zero, limitless.
