About Us


Nolan Carter Architectural Design is a family-owned, full-service architectural and design firm that works with a variety of dental, health care, and financial clients – focusing on new construction or facility additions.

Founded in 2015 by Ian and Toni Wilson, and named after their two sons, Nolan and Carter, Nolan Carter has become one of the fastest-growing and well-respected architectural firms in Wisconsin.

After dedicating decades of his career to the construction trades, Ian witnessed firsthand how the client’s needs were often not taken into consideration.  He realized that working for these other firms no longer aligned with his vision, so he and Toni set off to create their own firm – focusing on their mission… being an advocate for their clients.
