About NO

NO is the Nichols Office of Architecture, a full-service architecture and interior design company. NO projects show a concern for the quality of material detailing, a sense of the pragmatic, and the open possibilities of conceptual and collaborative thinking.

NOArchitecture can also be seen as 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.

NOArchitecture began on January 1st, 2008. The work, however, has been produced independently and collaboratively over the last 20 years.
