“We were introduced to NVDC by a colleague who had recently completed a day surgery centre in collaboration with NVDC. The careful attention to detail was evident from the outset, with detailed plans that impressed the contractors.

From the design stage through to the completion of the building, Farahbod and Anna were very involved and always available to discuss any issues, including small design changes made towards the end of completion. We would not hesitate to recommend their services to others in the healthcare sector and wish them all the best with their continued expansion in this area.”

“I have known Mr Farahbod Nakhaei since 2012. I have engaged NVDC Architects on 5 different projects since then. Firstly, the design of our first surgical clinic, Elanic at 132 Bath Street, Glasgow and then subsequently with another clinic in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh. We have currently engaged NVDC to design a new Private Hospital in Glasgow, which is currently entering the building phase. Indeed, so impressed am I with their work that I have also hired them for work on my previous house.

I have been very impressed over the years by NVDC’s work, their understanding of the Healthcare Technical Memoranda and their ability to blend this into aesthetically and functionally pleasing designs. They are a pleasure to deal with and have always provided high-quality, timely and cost-effective solutions to our briefs. They are responsive and have managed our latest Private Hospital build extremely well on time and within budget constraints. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Farahbod Nakhaei and the team at NVDC.”

Dr Vivek Sivarajan – Elanic Medical

“My project to expand my practice had hit virtually every problem imaginable from planning, contractor issues, money issues – you name it, it happened! Without Farahbod’s guidance and interventions, I would have had a genuine disaster on my hands. In addition to guiding me through all the mire of the expansion, we have ended up with a lovely result which has garnered patient compliment after compliment. While I would do many, many things differently I would not swap working with Farahbod and his team under any circumstances.”

“Architect Farahbod Nakhaei designed and built the original Vermilion clinic on the 1st floor of our building in Corstorphine back in 2011. He created a beautiful place to practice dentistry, one that still looks bright and contemporary 12 years on.

So when we acquired the 2nd floor earlier this year, I did not hesitate to appoint Farahbod's firm NVDC to design our new upstairs clinic. Farahbod and Malcolm Cullen have transformed what was a rather dreary space into a stunning five-chair clinic with an admin office and seminar/staff room. Once again their use of light and clever design of each surgery has resulted in an environment in which our team can do their best work."

Dr David Offord – Vermilion Dental

"Having worked with NVDC before in seven of our dental practices from Oban to Bonnyrigg, and being nothing but thoroughly satisfied with the standard of their work, we didn’t hesitate to contact them again. They have a vast knowledge of clinics, from A-Z and have liaised flawlessly with the contractors we chose – including being on call 24/7 to deal with any hiccups. As we were on a tight schedule, it was imperative that we used a company that we could rely on. NVDC didn't cancel or arrive late to any meetings and always brought new and interesting solutions to problems we had.”

Dr Arfan Ahmed Shawlands Dental Care

“Farahbod Nakhaei and his team have the knowledge, listening power, enthusiasm, experience, expertise, endurance and energy to provide a prompt and first-class service with all our projects, through the years. With dedication and prompt service, they have been successful in each of the planning applications with the change of use for a dental practice. Without their help and support which was second to none, we have achieved very successful outcomes, which has transformed our business plans. We would thoroughly recommend NVDC for any architectural and planning needs.”

Dr Vinay Belur - Belur Orthodontics

“NVDC is professional & approachable and the team always return my calls swiftly and responds to emails within a day. I believe that NVDC is methodical, meticulous, knowledgeable and also very pleasant to engage with during all manners of work from inception to completion.”

Simon Matheou - Colosseum

“I write to formally extend our gratitude to Farahbod, Malcolm Cullen and the rest of the team at NVDC for their support to Oasis/Bupa Dental Care with design services, planning advice and project management activities. The longstanding relationship you have with the Property Team in Bupa Dental Care is highly valued and I look forward to continuing this arrangement through pending projects throughout the UK and Ireland.”

Andy Kavanagh - Bupa Dental


“Henry Duncan is a firm of developers and investors. We currently operate in Scotland but have much wider experience UK-wide and indeed into Europe through previous businesses which were sold in 2007.

We have a great relationship with Farahbod Nakhaei and his team that now stretches back over 8 years. They have provided us with the full range of Architectural services and supported our Planning Consultants where required - all with consummate professionalism. We have delivered 2 schemes together and are working on a 3rd at this precise moment.

We would recommend their diligence and design flair balanced with a good commercial acumen that has helped us achieve cost reductions and good buildability. A rare breadth of strengths in our experience.”

Bryan Duncan - Henry Duncan LLP

“It’s a place that’s full of light even on a grey day. The minute you walk into the house you have the rooflight above you which makes the entrance so bright and inviting. The different materials in the interiors reflect the light in interesting ways. You feel the expanse of the open-plan spaces with all the light. It's amazing to us that although the house is almost 3000 sq feet, it feels like everything is close to you. It doesn’t feel like any part of the house is miles away, we always feel part of it. And we can see so much of the garden now that wasn’t possible before. It’s given us the lifestyle that we wanted, and there is a real sense of calm throughout the whole house.”

Linda Murray

“I have used Farahbod and his team at NVDC for several business projects over the last 10 years, so it was the obvious choice to instruct NVDC again when I decided to add an extension to my own house. Farahbod's skill and creative flair have resulted in an extremely well-designed layout internally. Externally, a sympathetic approach has been taken to ensure the extension fits in well with the local Conservation Area. It looks stunning, and we are absolutely delighted with it, now that the works are complete. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Farahbod and his team at NVDC, as they are a creatively excellent architect's practice.”

Johnathan Henry


“Miller Homes have been working with NVDC Architects since 2018 and they were appointed on a particularly challenging multi-storey residential project to provide architectural services to the Building Warrant stage. We have found their team to be professional, diligent and thorough in their work ethic and also in the information they produce together with their care and attention to detail which is of the highest quality. Miller Homes looks forward to developing our relationship with NVDC Architects and would have no issues with recommending or promoting this practice for future projects.”

Miller Homes – T Cahill

“We first started working with Farahbod and his team at NVDC Architects in 2020 through a recommendation and have been impressed by their rare blend of design flair, expertise and commercial acumen as well as their professionalism. We are currently working with NVDC on our development of 30 two and three-bedroom apartments in the West End of Glasgow and as ever they have impressed us with their professionalism, diligence and immaculate attention to detail. We look forward to developing our working relationship with Farahbod and his team at NVDC and would have no hesitation in recommending NVDC Architects.”

Clark Nelson – Adam Scotland Ltd. House Builders

“We have used NVDC on various projects and found them to be very professional and helpful in all tasks that we have given them. They are very much customer-driven and quality and service are very much at the forefront of their Business ethos. I very rarely put my name to recommending businesses however this is without doubt an outstanding company from start to completion."
