Nicola de Quincey

Nicola de Quincey RIBA SCA is an architect accredited in conservation. She has been the principal of her practice Nicola de Quincey architecture and conservation since 2009; prior to that she was Director of Heritage at JTP. 

Conversion and re-use of historic buildings and landscapes in both urban and rural settings are Nicola’s particular interests. She works across private, voluntary and public sectors on projects that range from workhouses to palaces. Nicola believes that understanding these historic places is more than assessing buildings, landscape and research; she engages in hands-on consultation to find out about a place and to help clients and communities to shape their evolving use of historic fabric and its setting.  

Nicola worked closely with JTP to secure the listed building consent for the award-winning regeneration of St Clement’s, a former Victorian workhouse hospital in Mile End, East London, and provides continuity and conservation advice on this and other projects.
