Nick Midgley     -     I  formed NMD in 1990 after running projects for Apple Computer's UK HQ & the central offices for the Architectural Review & AJ magazines in London with Troughton  McAslan and Pembroke & Magdalen Colleges in Oxford for Maguire and Murray.




I work with clients providing expertise in contemporary and historic environments


  • design planning & construction & listed buildings


  • cost planning & development appraisals

  • site analysis & feasibility studies


  • commercial residential & institutional

  • private bespoke & personal


  • energy & renewables

  • interiors & landscape

  • materials & detail


  • furniture space planning & lighting








My own design practice has nationally  built modern award winning buildings in contemporary & historic environments with private, institutional & commercial clients.


From private houses to universities, historic and conservation work with medical, development & commercial clients.



Every project is formed as a one to one relationship with the client.


A period of briefing & understanding a clients needs takes place at the inception.


Budgets & aspirations are assessed, sketch ideas developed & impartial advice given to guide the project forward.





My expertise developed over 25+ years is brought to bear on every clients scheme, the initial steps are often the most important, with fundamental issues being established which form a project & ensure it's success.


I plan with each client for an enjoyable process, developing the design, appraising costs & build methods - bringing peace of mind to your project.


Every design is planned around simple ECO principles that can be embodied in our everyday lives as your natural way of living.


light & space   creating a sense of place




Designing your project & creating your new space is a process we share, exciting a real desire to improve your everyday environment.


Choosing materials & textures that marry with light, mood & colour to create subtle spaces that enhance the way you work & live.


Opening your eyes to the possibilities of something special within the ordinary.






excitement   enhancing our lives

peace of mind

Nick Midgley     -     I qualified as an architect in 1987 with a BA Hons Dip Arch from the 'Oxford School of Architecture', then part of Oxford Polytechnic [now part of Oxford Brookes University]

in 1986 & formed NMD in 1990 in YORK


Since 1994 Nick chose not to remain registered with the RIBA & ARB to allow the practice to pursue a a wider ranging path in architecture & design to bring clients a free ranging professional service & more holistic approach to the procurement of the built environment.


This has lead to the design practice regularly winning design awards & having an unbroken success in successful planning determinations for contemporary projects in sensitive urban & rural locations, often within historic environments.


Nick is based in a spacious modern studio in Calderdale in an old cotton mill, over looking the green hills and woods of the valley - only 3 mins from Junc 24 on the M62, Leeds 20 mins., Newcastle is 2 hrs, Manchester 35 mins, or London by mainline train 2.5 hrs - I've current projects in all these locations and right up to the Scottish borders.
