Deeply rooted in Miami culture, Raymond Nicolas is a creative multi-faceted design house specializing in the diverse and intrinsic world of architecture and interior design.
Raymond Nicolas is continuing its expansion of its design sphere through the launch of its menswear line, a cultivated nod to Miami’s swagger, in 2023.
We are a multi-faceted design house composed of a small family of designers, architects and creatives brought together by our interdisciplinary interests in the utilitarian nature of architecture, spacial artistry of interior design and self-expression of fashion.
Fueled by the need to inspire our community through a distinctive design approach equally inspired by our heritage and aspirations of global unity, we are committed to evolving our craft and emboldening society to understand how the triangulation of our specialties work together: architecture, interior design and fashion.
We only curate a select number of projects per year, and prefer it that way, to guarantee every design detail our projects demand are, both, handled with the utmost care and actualized to perfection. Specializing in the seamless cohesion of interior design and architecture, we pride ourselves in crafting bold, refined and eclectic environments suit to embody a timeless aesthetic whilst, simultaneously, expanding our creative footprint in fashion design.
