Andrea Hickey

Associate / Senior Architect

Andrea joined Nissen Richards Studio in 2015 after receiving a Distinction for her Master of Architecture from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow where she had previously graduated with in a first class honours degree in 2014. Whilst working for the practice she has since gone on to fully qualify as an architect, graduating with distinction from the University of Westminster in 2018.

Since joining the office Andrea has split her time equally between exhibition and architecture. She has worked on exhibitions at the Shire Hall, Historical Courthouse Museum in Dorset, the National Railway Museum in York and at King’s College London. 

She has also worked on a number of residential projects for both private and commercial clients. These projects include a new build 4 storey development fronting within the Regents Canal conservation area in Hackney, a small residential extension in Surbiton and the extensive refurbishment and creation of basements to two mews properties on Palace Garden Mews in Kensington, London.

She is currently working as the lead designer in our Reimagining Wordsworth project for the Wordsworth Trust. This HLF funded project involves a complete overhaul of the Trust’s assets across their site and includes the refurbishment of the Grade I listed Dove Cottage, new permanent museum spaces, a shop, a cafe and site wide signage.

Andrea is teaching the postgraduate Architecture Unit3 at London Metropolitan University alongside other members of NRS, exploring themes from the work of the studio.
