OUR BUILT ENVIRONMENT

It affects the way we feel, the way we live, and the way we interact with one another because it often sets the boundaries of our experiences. These personal and intellectual forces of architecture are what make the exploration of the design and building process both professionally engaging and socially imperative.

We are licensed in California and the founder, Eric Nyhus, is LEED accredited (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).  Eric has been involved in the designing and building of residential and hospitality projects in Northern California and around the world for nearly three decades. NDG is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.

Eric Nyhus

Growing up in significant art and cultural centers such as Rio de Janeiro, Athens, and Paris, Eric experienced first-hand some of the most influential and important architecture in the world.  He brings almost 30 years of hospitality and high-end residential design experience to every project and, like the staff at NDG, applies it with great enthusiasm, creativity, and energy.  Other designs in Eric’s portfolio include wineries, spas, stables, residences, and resorts/hotels.

 

EDUCATION
Washington University in St. Louis, B.A. Architecture 1991

 

PERSONAL

Eric enjoyed two incredible years in Japan teaching English to junior high school children and briefly played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL.  The son of a diplomat, he was fortunate to grow up around the world in cities like Rio de Janeiro, Guatemala City, Brasilia, Paris, Athens, Madrid, and Washington D.C.  Eric is also a member of the Hillsborough Beautification Foundation Board of Trustees (HBF), and past member and chairman of the ADRB (Architecture and Design Review Board) of Hillsborough (7 years), proudly serving his community.

"We had long complained about our small, dark and bunker-like “master suite” and, given limited room for expansion, we despaired that we could ever have what we wanted. Eric listened attentively to our wish list and created an innovative and sophisticated solution, one we had never considered and now enjoy every day. His design was compatible to the original “A-frame” of our main house without its limitations and produced a harmonious whole. We loved working with him!"

"Eric was an outstanding architect to work with on our major kitchen and bathroom remodel. He brought a variety of creative, practical, and sophisticated design solutions to the table. He is a great listener and was attentive to our needs. He worked well with our contractor to problem solve and bring his ideas to life, and he was additionally adept in managing the permit process -- he helped navigate and expedite approvals which made it a smooth experience overall. He has a keen eye for detail and is a pleasure to work with. We would work with him again in a heartbeat - he met and exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend his architectural services."
