Nix Group Architects is an award-winning firm, formed in 1993, that provides a full range of architectural services on specific architectural pursuits. Though the firm has completed a wide range of projects, the firm continues to specialize in single and multi-family residential, historic, religious, commercial, restaurants, and land planning projects; varying from new projects to remodels and additions, to renovations and preservation projects. The firm actively seeks unique design projects, typically within these types, that require challenging problem-solving solutions. Our firm's strength and longevity has been fostered by our philosophy to begin each project as attentive listeners. We have continued throughout the years to develop our creative skills and to nurture our roles as architects, in order to enable our clients to visualize their goals and budget, and to translate their aspirations and dreams into a realization within the real-world environment.
Many of the firm's previous historic and preservation projects have dealt with extending the usable life of existing buildings through adaptive reuse and preservation. This required understanding the complexities of designing in context with the structure's existing conditions and remaining flexible and responsive to newly discovered issues for the duration of those types of projects. The firm also works towards achieving energy efficient and sustainable solutions as a core fundamental goal. For those clients wishing to include additional green and sustainable features into their project’s budget and aspirations, several objective guidelines can be integrated into the project, to include those of the Austin Energy Green Building or similar programs, with the aim towards achieving those higher standards and goals.
