A. Nicholas Bourque, AIA, NCARB

Lafayette Studio Director

After earning his Master of Architecture from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Nic started his career in the high-end residential sector. His first job in the architectural field allowed him to grow into a role as a project manager while enjoying the experience of designing heirloom-quality spaces for people to call home. Starting in 2015, he continued his passion for residential design while expanding his design resume into the commercial and biomedical realm under private practice.

At H/S, Nic utilizes his 20+ years of experience in management, design, and planning to fill his role as Director of Holly & Smith Architects’ Lafayette Studio.

When not practicing architecture, Nic enjoys spending time with his family and taking advantage of the unique South Louisiana landscape, climate, and culture. Paddling, hiking, gardening, cooking, and amateur beekeeping fill his time away from work.
