Nimi Attanayake co-founded nimtim architects in 2014, an approachable and vibrant young architecture practice operating across London mainly focussing on residential projects. The practice has a particular interest in creating unique designs and finding simple, elegant and pragmatic solutions in a spirit of collaboration.
Nimtim’s projects have been shortlisted for NLA ‘Don’t Move Improve’ awards as well as being globally published. Nimi trained at the University of Nottingham and the University of Westminster where she focused on urban scale transformative community projects. She qualified as an architect from London Metropolitan University in 2008 and is an RIBA and ARB registered architect.
Prior to setting up nimtim, Nimi has been involved in diverse projects such as ‘Corby Cube’ working with Corby Local Authority to deliver their new civic hub and ‘Duke Street’ with Grosvenor Estates to develop a mixed use of retail and lateral apartments. Nimi has been a visiting critic at Westminster University and University for the Creative Arts. She is also an RIBA Ambassador and along with nimtim architects has taken part in RIBA’s National Schools Programme running architectural workshops and projects in local primary schools.
