“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.

— Frank Gehry


Bio | Adam Richards

I am an Architectural Designer and RIBA Part.2 qualified, achieving a Merit with Commendation Masters Degree from Birmingham City University. In addition to five years practice experience working within residential, education and commercial sectors, I have personally collaborated on sixteen private residential projects. These range from small scale extension work to substantial modernisation and house re-ordering projects, from concept design through to completion. I greatly value the experiences I’ve gained within practice and also working independently. I have a passion for architectural model making, principally focusing on using the medium within the design studio.

Manifesto |

Having worked within a variety of architectural practices and directly with clients on private residential projects, the experiences have led me to believe in the importance of viewing architecture as a 'social enterprise'. I firmly believe that the field of architecture needs to take greater responsibility for our human and environmental well-being. Developing strong relationships with clients in order to achieve high quality buildings that meet the goals of the brief, respect the wider site context and reduce the impact upon our environment will ultimately lead to both a better quality of architecture and a more sustainable future.
