Nils WestmanStudio OK was established in 1993 by Nils Westman and has subsequently become a well known and respected Architectural Practice in the heart of Devon at Okehampton.  Our core client base is in Devon, however we have completed many projects in the neighbouring counties of Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire and further afield.

Our Practice has a wealth of experience in most sectors, from producing high quality health care buildings, to one-off houses or new residential schemes.  We aim to provide a professional response to a client's needs and supply a design that not only meets but exceeds their expectations and we can offer a tailor made service to suit the stages required.

We have experience of projects with multiple funding sources particularly the National Lottery and the challenges that funding organisations can pose.  The Practice is chartered with the RIBA, carries full public liability insurance and can satisfy funding requirements for, quality assurance and professional indemnity insurance.  Studio OK also has a team of consultants with whom we have an established working relationship and who provide a skilled professional and local service.

Sustainability is the pre-occupation of Studio OK, it influences all our design processes and the way we work as an office.  We can offer an in-depth knowledge and expertise in the latest sustainable technologies and design theories.

About Nils

Nils was born in Stockholm, Sweden and moved to the UK at the age of eight.  Because of his Swedish upbringing he has always had an affinity with timber and the use of natural materials and energy conscious design principles. His pursuits are wilderness walking, cross country skiing and mountain bothies!

Nils studied at Bath University School of Architecture in the 1970's, when the School made a name for its team working principles, with the respective complimentary disciplines of Structural and Environmental Engineering.  This he considers to have been an inspiring experience and has led to the Practice's team working methodology.
