Madeleine Nicol - Blight Rayner

I believe that architecture is about the relationship between people and place and that good design has the ability to enhance both. I am passionate about design across all project scales be that through the consideration of fine grain details to enhance the user experience within a space, or addressing broad scale issues such as our impact on the environment.
