ADAM Architecture is the leading practice specialising in Classical and Traditional architecture, and contextual urban design.

The practice has offices in Winchester and London, and is run by Nigel Anderson, Hugh Petter, George Saumarez Smith, Robbie Kerr, Darren Price and Robert Cox. As Design Directors they lead their own projects, with their own design ethos, while all working together as experts in the field of classical and traditional architecture.  We are recognised worldwide for our award-winning projects, which range in scale from private houses and the restoration of historic buildings, to commercial and public buildings, to masterplans including village extensions and major housing developments.

The Directors are consulted by government agencies and ministries on policy and design, and several urbanism projects have been cited as exemplar examples in recent government publications. They are trustees of national interest groups and prominent in professional affairs. They are active members or trustees of many national and international architectural and urban design organisations, including the RIBA, the Prince’s Foundation, the Academy of Urbanism,  The Georgian Group, the British School at Rome, and the International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism (INTBAU).


The practice was established in Winchester in 1955, it evolved to Robert Adam Architects in 2000 and in 2010 the practice name was changed to ADAM Architecture to recognise the individual design profiles of the Directors. Over the last 30 years, the firm has progressed from strength to strength, cultivating its profile to its current national and international level, and establishing a solid client base across the UK and overseas. After 44 years with the firm, Robert Adam stepped down as a Director in 2020 in order to pursue his own independent and academic interests.

The London office was opened in 1993 and has a strong team of architects and technologists who work closely with the team in the Winchester office. Located in Somerset House, this office is ideally positioned to serve our London clients as well as other projects for all Directors.


In 2010 ADAM Urbanism was formed, a sister branch to ADAM Architecture, to recognise the quantity and variety of projects and experience in masterplanning and urban design, whilst sharing the strong expertise and support of the whole practice. ADAM Urbanism has led some pioneering work in masterplanning of new urban areas for the Duchy of Cornwall in Newquay and major urban extensions in Somerset, Oxfordshire, Lincolnshire, Berkshire and Hampshire.
