Nathaniel Cram, AIA, LEED AP

Nat joins the Overland family from his home city of Portland, Maine, where he practiced with Scott Simons Architects, leading design and construction administration efforts on civic, religious, and educational projects.

Graduating from University of Pennsylvania with a Master of Architecture, he took full advantage of opportunities early-on to study and work abroad in Japan, China, England, Australia, and New Zealand, giving Nat a strong appreciation for cultural values and how they shape and inform the built environment. An intensive Master Class with Glenn Murcutt in Sydney, Australia, combined with the imperative relationship between ecology and building, solidified these values for him.

Nat is recognized for his positive energy, optimism, and trusting client relationships, along with a strong eye for design. At his previous firms, he used these strengths on a variety of works including a Safety Complex for a Native American Pueblo in New Mexico, a historic courthouse in Colorado, a dormitory for Dartmouth College, and three public libraries in Maine. Nat is currently engaged in a mixed-use hotel development in Midland, Texas which is proving exciting and challenging on all levels.

After hours, Nat can be found exploring new cities and discovering unexpected landscapes with his wife and son. Cycling and rowing feed his need for speed while fly-fishing or backpacking keep his adventurous spirit alive.
