Nest / Randy Brown Architects
Perspective 04

Nest is an unbuilt project by Randy Brown Architects. The space is a collaboration with another design office. It is a place to both experience and create digital media.

Randy Brown Architects studied birds’ nests while developing the design, and it is evident in the way elements twist and intertwine. It is also visible in the form taken by the walls, floor, and ceiling, which wrap around in curving wooden strips.

Perspective 02

Although the design draws inspiration from a nest, the name of the project is an acronym for Nexus for Experimental Spaces and Tectonics. The form was studied through digital models, and took on a tubular sinuous form. The open plan contains areas for the conferences, the studio, digital support, and storage in under 1400 square feet.


Nest is a new kind of office. Randy Brown Architects worked with the clients to create a dramatic, and plausible space for their fellow designers. The digital design has a strong relationship to the clients’ work, and is a space for both the designers and their future clients to be inspired.
