Nico Warr Architects is an established practice based in Notting Hill in London. Nico Warr Architects works internationally on residential and commercial projects providing full architectural and interior design, product and furniture design services
As a practice we believe that the strength of architecture lies firmly in the experience of everyday life. It is a given that building must be fit for purpose but it must also, at its best, reveal a poetic content. We believe that our skill, as architects, must meet the most practical challenges of construction, and give space to the less tangible issues of architectural culture, aesthetics and social and environmental responsibility
Amongst our current European projects are a new-build duplex penthouse added to an existing 11 storey building in Geneva and the restoration and re-modelling of a large finca and out-buildings in the Balearic Islands. In London we are restoring and extending several Listed buildings in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster and replacing a warehouse building in Bloomsbury with a new 5-storey headquarters building for a financial institution.
