Kiet Nguyen

Architectural Assistant / Designer

Kiet trained Melbourne Australia at RMIT University where he completed his Bachelor and masters with distinction. Since then he has worked on projects in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the USA.

Prior to Nissen Richard Studio, he has worked with a number of different practices, including Swiss architecture practice Herzog & De Meuron where he worked on the redevelopment of the Stamford Bridge Stadium in Fulham. He also worked at the London based practice PARTI as a project architect, where he gained experience in hotel typologies, including projects in Kangaroo Island Australia & La Quinta and California, as well as a hotel project in Kindle, Lake district.

Kiet’s thesis at University, questioned the typology of the airport and the boundary between public and private spaces. The airport has the potential to be a place in where you can stay and that everything is in reach rather than a place that you rush through to a holiday destination. The project becomes the mediator between the airport and the city where the juxtaposition between both typologies creates a unique idea of what an airport can be.
