nkt architecture began on its journey in 1991 when Nicolas Tedesco, a draftsperson, followed his passion for architecture and created Nicolas Tedesco Architecture (NTA). During this time Nic embarked on a journey to become a qualified architect. He graduated from the University of Sydney in 1998 and in 2000 completed his registration with the Royal Australian Institute of Architects. From 2001 to 2003 Nic operated as a sole trader.
nkt architecture Pty Ltd was established in 2003 when Nic was joined by Kim Eagleton. Kim holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture. Together they have grown the business to what it is today.
nkt architecture is an architectural firm of integrity, bringing quality architecture to the greater Sydney region. At nkt architecture we believe good design has the ability to add value to people’s daily lives, and contributes to community, neighbourhoods, and the local environment.

Nicola Kramers B.Arch
Nicola completed her Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Witwatersrand Johannesburg in 1995. Having worked as a consultant architect upon arriving in Australia, it wasn’t long before Nicola joined the team at nkt architecture on a permanent basis.
Nicola specialises in residential homes but has also gained experience in commercial projects, designing for clients with small office projects. Her keen eye allows her to create stunning homes and her knowledge of product and layout make for an extremely trustworthy architect.
Nicola has also served on the aesthetic committee of three residential estates, where she was responsible for reviewing and approving plans.
With a reputation of working well with clients, Nicola is both creative and intuitive and is able to understand the wants of the client from start to finish. She believes that architecture is not bound to the elite, but should be a service afforded by all home builders, whether a first home or subsequent home for the experienced builder.
