About Nick Spangenberg
Danish born architect Janniche ‘Nick’ Spangenberg has over 50 years experience designing villas, homes, hotels, civic and industrial buildings, having begun his work in Sweden in 1964.
There he worked for 15 years with Gunnarson & Spangenberg firm and then with Arket Sar, but his highest profile project to arise from that time (fairly early in his career) is his collaboration with Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad and other architects on the design of now-iconic yellow-and-blue Ikea buildings.
For a long time he also worked in the Middle East, such as with world-leader construction company Skanska on various residential and commercial projects in Lybia and with the Foreign Affairs Minister of Oman.
Spangenberg has lived in Mallorca since 1993, and is supported by his wife Inger in his freelance work based close to Palma.
Since being here, he has helped to create a long list of notable buildings on the island including Hotel Sa Cabana, Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel & Spa, La Paloma and Chez Camille restaurants in Palma and the Gran Hotel Sóller as well as exclusive private homes and villas.
Spangenberg offers a variety of services from the height of his 45-year freelancing experience. These include architecture and architect work, from ideation to sketching and digital design as well as full consulting on designs with a focus on affordability combined with flair.
The husband-wife duo also offers project development services, taking ideas from paper to reality while managing building contractors and processes. Finally, Spangenberg also consults and designs renovations with an eye to bringing modern efficiency while keeping traditional style.
