Nick Foster, principal


604 558 6344

Dedicated. Pursuer of narrative. Flip-flop flaunter.

Originally from the UK, Nick graduated from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London before completing his RIBA qualifications. He then worked for some of England’s most innovative architects, gaining indispensable hands-on experience with substantial construction projects. Nick joined the studio in 2006 and in his role as one of omb’s principals provides direction and a compassionate brand of leadership to the team.

Nick is inspired by pretty much everything around him, from the visible to what is hidden between the lines. He believes that every architectural project begins with identifying its unique narrative and context, then creatively nurturing it into meaningful design. Nick is an excellent communicator with a special talent for dismantling complex concepts down to concise graphic and verbal expressions of ideas. This is the secret ingredient which permits him to establish and translate client requirements. Just don’t ask him to wear proper shoes.
