Nicole joined the Metke Team in the Fall of 2022. A native Californian, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. During her senior year at UCSB, she worked for an architecture firm as an intern drafter and fell in love with architecture and interior design. This positive experience propelled her to get her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon. After graduating, she worked as an Architectural Associate and gained invaluable knowledge working on both commercial and residential projects.
Nicole brings her experience in architectural design and love for interiors to each project. She is an enthusiastic designer who enjoys creating inviting and inspiring spaces that reflect each client’s design goals. Various design styles intrigue her because she sees them as opportunities to grow. Her favorite part of a project is seeing it being constructed. She says, “Although the design phase is exciting because we get to be creative, the build phase is when you get to see a project come to life. It is truly a joy to see the client’s reaction to everything we’ve drawn and dreamt of becoming a reality.”
