Meet Nick Nepveux, born in Oklahoma City, raised in McAlester and Edmond, OK but claims Stillwater as a hometown because that’s where he discovered his passion for architecture and met his wife Leslie. They were married in E. Faye Jone’s Thorncrown Chapel right after graduating from architecture school at Oklahoma State and moved to Phoenix a month later.

Nick’s graduate school led them to Lawrence, Kansas where Nick pursued a passion for teaching design while studying for a Masters. A unique career opportunity for Leslie brought them to Dallas seven years ago where the Nepveux’ s call home today.

Nick Nepveux
Nick and Leslie live in a 98-year-old house in Junius Heights, East Dallas. Junius Heights sits in the middle of a triangle formed by Deep Ellum, Lower Greenville, and Lakewood.

Nick and Leslie have a five-year old son Harrison, and a three-year old daughter Winona. Harrison loves baseball and Legos. He’s a lefty with a wicked curve and he’s learning to write the alphabet, math, and he loves to paint. Winona is a free spirit who lives life turned up to 11. She loves animals, baby dolls, singing at the top of her lungs, and dancing.

During Nick’s time at Glenn|Partners, Nick has set design standards and established a design process that all our projects strive to achieve. Nick’s project responsibilities include the design for Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep’s Student Innovation Center, Holy Family Catholic Academy and Dallas ISD’s Hawthorne Elementary School.
