RIBA London Award

The National Portrait Gallery’s ‘Inspiring People’ project to re-model one of the nation’s favourite and most important museums has won an RIBA London Award for its architectural scheme, led by Jamie Fobert Architects and Purcell. Nissen Richards Studio are delighted to be part of the team cited for the award, recognising their role as Interpretation and Permanent Exhibition Designers.


NPG shortlisted for MIX Awards

As a practice, we now have 45 creative awards to our name – from RIBA National Awards to Cumbria Tourism Awards – but we’re particularly thrilled when our work is shortlisted for an award we’ve never been up for before. Our permanent exhibition design work for The National Portrait Gallery, which re-opened in 2023 after a major, multi-year re-modelling project, has now been announced as a finalist in the 2024 MIX Awards in the Public Sector & Cultural Interiors category.


‘Untold Lives’ Opens at Kensington Palace

‘Untold Lives: A Palace at Work’ is a new exhibition at Kensington Palace, uncovering the forgotten stories of those who worked at the royal palaces over 300 years ago. Nissen Richards Studio created the exhibition and graphic design for the new show, which shines a light on the servants and courtiers – from pages to cooks, wetnurses and seamstresses – who managed life at Court and used their skills and expertise to look after the royal family and their homes.


Strengthening our Senior Team

We have strengthened our senior team with one new appointment and two internal promotions. Former Associate Sophie Mitchell, a Senior Architect who has worked with us for 9 years, has now been promoted to Senior Associate. Senior Architect Francesco Bitelli, who joined in 2022, has been made an Associate and our new appointment Paula Trindade Morgan joins the company as Senior Architect and Associate, bringing the company’s second tier of Senior Associate and Associate management to eight, helping run the studio’s increasingly-international portfolio, with schemes underway currently in England, Jersey, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Malaysia, India and the USA.
