Gary Nichols

Our fearless leader joined NicholsBooth Architects in 2006 as president and CEO. A veteran of commercial interiors with the scars to prove it, he has devoted himself to his passion for design for almost three decades. Today, Gary is responsible for directing commercial interiors and business development. He possesses an uncanny ability to combine strong design, technical, and project-management skills, ensuring that creativity never means losing sight of buildability and the client’s budget and schedule.

Gary’s outside work makes it seem like he doesn’t need much sleep. He recently served as the president of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Northern California Chapter. He serves as a professional design critic for the California College of the Arts’ Design Studio and was a professional advisor to the Interior Design Advisory Committee for the Art Institute of California, San Francisco. He is also a juror for the IIDA SoCal 2016 Calibre Awards. You have seen his work published in Interior Design, Contract Magazine, Paper City, and Metropolis (or if you haven’t, you should have).
