We believe in the potential for imaginative design to make meaningful public spaces that connect our buildings to the outdoors and enhance a sense of place and identity. In practical terms, our approach to designing landmark places has built enduring links with local communities and significantly increased footfall by attracting new users. Our experience includes the design of master plans, urban spaces and pavilions, and infrastructure.
Adept at seeing the big picture, our strengths lie in placing equal attention on the design of a building’s surroundings as we do on the architecture itself. We are motivated to create memorable gathering places with possibilities for personal expression. In 2020, Nex was recognised by Building Design as the UK Public Realm Architect of the Year, citing our success in creating valuable and valued public space at the heart of the Duke of York Restaurant, Royal Wharf Pier, and the RAF Museum.
