Nomad Architecture

Nomad Architecture was established with the goal of exploring the word ‘home’. Our home is Exmoor, its extraordinary landscapes and its surrounding villages and towns.

Good architecture comes from understanding the people and places that make our work possible. We think a home can only be fully understood by experiencing it mindfully and seeing how its occupants use and shape it to make it their own. By exploring these ideas, we learn what ‘home’ means to our clients.

We appreciate how our surroundings can greatly impact our well-being and enjoyment of a space. From the start of the design process, we prioritize people and strive to bring joy to the places we create. Whether it’s an old or new home, we want to help you discover its unique identity.

Exmoor Magazine

Exmoor Magazine, established in 1997, is a rather special, locally-owned, locally-produced quarterly for all who love Exmoor, North Devon and the Quantocks.
It is a features-led, high-quality publication collected and loved by locals and visitors alike.
The magazine is a huge local advocate, networking and supporting all local businesses and community groups as well as being an asset to Exmoor National Park.
