Who We Are

Nicolas Castaneda

Senior Designer

Nicolas takes a pragmatic approach to design. Function is his top priority: He notes that beautiful spaces offer little value unless their layouts and programs match the needs of users.  At SGA he applies this approach to life sciences projects as he works on lab design and construction documentation.

Before joining SGA, Nicolas led his own firm, INSIDE OUT, for several years.  Based in Lima, Peru, the company specialized in residential, office, and retail design.

Nicolas moved to the U.S. in 2021 with this wife so he could pursue a Master of Architecture degree at Boston Architectural College.  His classes take place in the evening, so he is able to work full-time while studying.

Nicolas earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences in Lima.  Outside of the office he enjoys cooking new recipes, exploring Boston, and spending time with his wife and newborn daughter Emilia.
