After finishing an English degree and a stint in carpentry, Associate Nick brought his touch of craft and care to architecture. He immediately had a sense for the finer-grain details of design, and seamlessly worked through the assemblage of project components. At the heart of Nick’s approach is the desire to create environments that give people a sense of belonging and ownership, so that they, too, are invested in the life of the project.
Throughout his years at Goody Clancy Nick has filled many roles, including detailer, project architect, and project manager. Nick thrives at design and construction administration by coordinating the complexities of both projects and interdisciplinary teams. As a result, he’s known for his thorough and coherent process by contractors who can seamlessly transition a design into built work. Nick is proud of his efforts on the Kittredge Center at Holyoke Community College, which features Goody Clancy’s first green roof, and the Arley D. Cathey Dining Commons at the University of Chicago.
When he’s not working, Nick is continuing the family tradition of pie making across the different seasons to the chagrin of his son Jakob, who refuses to eat pie, but might give lemon meringue a try.
