Nate Neergaard


Nate’s professional experience includes seven years of industrial fabrication and design before a transition back to architecture when he joined Locati Architects in 2021. He brings a precise and innovative eye to the team, informed by both industrial design and architectural disciplines. Nate enjoys the challenge of the unknown and finds inspiration in demanding design scenarios.

Originally from Bozeman, Nate’s first foray into design was creating custom car stereo systems, where he realized the fulfillment in seeing a design concept through to reality. He holds a Masters in Architecture from Montana State University and has a command of multiple drafting platforms.

Outside of the office, Nate can be found exploring single track trails or racing hare scrambles on his dirt bike. He also enjoys camping with friends, golfing and sharpening his skills on the pool table.
