Daniel Lugsden

Having grown up and studied in areas of coastal and rural beauty, Daniel is very much inspired by context and the importance of understanding a place before designing ‘change’.

Daniel has been with Nash Partnership since 2002 and has been a partner since 2014. He has experience in all phases of a project. Recently, he has used his varied skills and interests in managing brief development, design, presentation and communication to clients and the public alike on complex city regeneration projects. His interest also extends to varied leisure schemes, especially hotel and spa work, as well as one-off new build houses of the highest standards. His experience helps to deliver clear and balanced commercial design advice.

Daniel set up Nash Partnership’s Bristol office in 2011,  developing its team and skills to make a difference in the region it serves, with many successful projects now making positive change across the city.

More recently, Daniel was runner up in the Architectural Designer of the Year category at the National Building Awards 2019, held at Wembley Stadium. This accolade recognises the quality and variety in scale and sector of project design work he has undertaken.

A motivated individual and a very keen sportsman with multiple international honours, Daniel applies the same focus and energy to his work whether he is understanding driving influences on the built environment and its architecture or putting pencil to paper.
