Nick Rael


The crystallization of a lifelong love of drawing and painting, Nick’s artistic values structure his design of spaces for people. Originally from Denver, Colorado, he was drawn to Colorado State University’s hands-on landscape architecture program. His BLA culminated in a months-long trip to Italy and France, where he visited world-famous gardens and enjoyed immersion into new cultural practices. Before starting at Reed Hilderbrand in 2022, Nick worked at MVVA, where he contributed to Cambridge Crossing and several residential projects on Martha’s Vineyard. Since joining Reed Hilderbrand, Nick contributes to the Volpe District Redevelopment in Kendall Square, Cambridge and Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Outside of work, he loves to travel, draw, and meet new people.
