Reid Nystrom

Project Manager
“Architecture is the art form of meticulous”


Reid simply loves the idea of making things.  This passion was manifested as a child, having grown up in two homes that his father built.  Reid has a combined creative and practical approach to architecture.  He particularly enjoys problem solving within given constraints, often leading him to new discoveries and ideas that ultimately formulate the final result.  He strives to create the most interesting outcome possible within a project’s scope and client expectations.  Reid’s vision is refined – he believes that applying a streamlined concept throughout the project will have a better outcome than trying too many aesthetic moves at once.


Prior to joining AA, Reid was a Designer at Montalba Architects in Santa Monica.  He then went on as a Junior Project Manager for Make Architecture where he worked on projects ranging from multi-family housing, civic facilities, high end residential, restaurants, and commercial tenant improvements.  Reid joined Abramson Architects In 2016 as a Job Captain.  He oversees in-house teams on commercial and institutional projects.
