NORD (Northern Office for Research and Design) was founded by Robin Lee and Alan Pert in July 2002. In 2005 the co-directors were included in the Architects Journal exhibition ‘40 Under 40’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The exhibition showcased the best young practices in the UK.
The practice is currently working on projects varying in scale and budget across a range of sectors. These include residential, commercial, domestic, retail and leisure as well as interior design and exhibition design.
