Nice Projects



Nice Projects create welcoming, enjoyable, inspiring homes, workplaces, 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 celebrates the local. We are committed to creating memorable, individual interiors without compromising on sustainability and longevity.

Fico celebrates the food and traditions of Puglia in southern Italy. This beachfront restaurant is inspired by the masserias from the region. Comfortable built-in banquettes and a long, communal table are combined with ceramic table lamps with linen shades to create a more relaxed, domestic feeling. The tables are made locally, using fallenTembusu trees. The interior features a terracotta tiled floor and a custom celling light installation, made by historic Puglian workshop, Parisi 1876. An edited palette of hand glazed tiles and raw linen curtains complement the plaster wall sconces, which are paired with pistachio painted windows and doors and handmade travertine stone door handles.
