Nicole HetheringtonASSOC. AIA


Detail-oriented and dedicated to a collaborative approach that creates dynamic and celebrated living experiences.

Nicole’s focus and interests are in residential design, ranging from the small and particular to the large and conceptual. Originally trained as a naval architect & marine engineer, Nicole brings an industrious spirit and unique perspective to her work. She hopes to create storied spaces for living that respond to both inhabitant and setting. Her artistry and attention to detail are evident in the award-winning house she designed and built with her husband in Providence’s West Side.

Nicole’s Boston Architectural College master’s thesis for a resident artist village on Block Island won the 2017 Alumni Thesis Award. She also won a full scholarship to spend a summer studying art, music, and architecture in France. As an active alumnus, Nicole regularly serves as a thesis critic to master’s students each semester.

In her leisure time, Nicole enjoys exploring nature trails and parks up and down the New England coast with her husband and their Sheltie.

Nicole graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering in Naval Architecture from SUNY Maritime College, and a Master of Architecture degree, magna cum laude, from the Boston Architectural College.
