We are design innovators. We built a practice based on integrity, collaboration and trust, creating innovative and original human environments that make for unforgettable experiences
Emeka Nnadi envisioned a boutique consulting firm that tackled global environmental issues, countering with smart, scalable and culturally relevant projects. He understood that incorporating ecological and historical conservation, adaptive reuse, restorative design and resilient and sustainable methods and techniques into the firm's projects would help reduce our carbon footprint and the long term effects of climate change—the defining issue of our time. A global citizen with formal education and decades of experience in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design, Emeka wondered, how can we leave the world a better place than we found it?
Since 2010, Emeka and his team have built Nadi’s reputation and portfolio on this guiding principle. What began as a sole proprietorship has evolved into an innovative, collaborative and interdisciplinary team of talented individuals including landscape architects, urban designers, planners and technical staff.
Nadi Design's work has transformed and enhanced various environments throughout North America and other parts of the world. In addition, the team has received (and continues to receive) industry and peer recognition, and multiple international design awards for delivering thoughtful, creative and sustainable design solutions for a variety of different projects. As of 2017, Nadi operates out of studios in Winnipeg, Calgary and Chicago.
We love to design and we do it with a passion to design for a better world.
Our talent is our most valuable resource. We employ a diverse group of individuals who each bring their own design understanding and experience to the work we produce for clients. We embrace and celebrate each person’s ideas, views and inspirations because we believe they enhance a client’s vision and elevate the final design concept and built work. Our staff has extensive experience in landscape architecture, urban design and planning. This experience has been instrumental to our success in design competitions and our relationship with clients. Our approach is collaborative, and our vision is to be part of a shared design and engineering community that creates memorable, endearing and sustainable spaces and places. Together, we will positively transform our world.
