Nice Projects


Nice Projects create welcoming, enjoyable, inspiring homes, retail and hospitality spaces.

We are Simone McEwan and Sacha Leong. We have honed our spacemaking skills through a combined 35 years of commercial practice, working with a diverse range of renowned studios and prestigious brands producing exceptional interiors all over the world.

Our experience and cross-disciplinary skillset allow us to deliver complete creative vision as well as implementation on projects of all scales, timeframes and budgets. We work closely with clients throughout the life of a project, ensuring a cohesive, smooth process at every stage, from briefing to post-occupancy.

We believe in a global language of design that also celebrates the local. We believe that spaces should be welcoming, enjoyable, combining elegance, inspiration and intelligence.

We are committed to creating memorable, individual interiors without compromising on sustainability and longevity.
