Nicholas Ingerson Architects have a business history of 44 years. Nick established Nicholas Ingerson Architect in 1969 in Adelaide. He immediately endeavoured to build his own studio and moved to Vienna in 1971 where he worked in the Viennese office of Atelier Shultmeyer Kroj, before establishing his own studio which continued until his return to Adelaide in 1976.
Branch offices were set up in Alice Springs and Darwin to develop housing applicable to arid and tropical regions. Low energy designs were developed for Ranger Housing for the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Service. These prefabricated, totally self-sufficient, low energy demand houses were constructed in remote regions throughout the central arid and top end tropical regions of the Northern Territory. The systems for these houses form the basis of current environmentally sustainable designs.
Returning to Adelaide in 1986, the practice focused on seafront housing, concentrating on maritime resistant methods, materials and designs specific to these locations. Relocation of the office to the hills saw the inclusion of sloping sites and bushfire controls as significant design influences.
