Nick Jay is the firm's principal architect and sole proprietor. He personally oversees all projects as a single point of contact.

During his career, Nick has proven his ability to produce architecture with technical proficiency and an elegant yet practical design. In all, Nick offers over 23 years of professional experience and education as your architect.

Prior to establishing Nicholas Jay Architect, Nick was an Associate and Technical Director in the Toronto office of IA Interior Architects Inc., a global firm dedicated to interior architecture. And before that he developed his career in other notable firms focusing on large scale municipal and government projects.

With that experience, Nick established his current practice with the knowledge and skills he developed in large firms and seeks to apply it to the benefit of small & medium businesses and homeowners. He enjoys practicing architecture in this manner as it allows him to delve deeper into the parameters, challenges, and opportunities of each design.
