Robert Adam Architects is one of the leading practitioners of traditional architecture and urbanism in Europe, based in the United Kingdom with offices in Winchestermarker and Londonmarker. There are five directors: Robert Adam, Nigel Anderson, Paul Hanvey, Hugh Petter and George Saumarez Smith.



The Practice was established in Winchester in 1955 under the name Winchester Design. During the 1980’s the practice developed a specialism for traditional and classical design. The Practice became incorporated in 1986. The name was changed to Robert Adam Architects in 1992 and the London office was opened in 1993. The team includes architects, technologists, urban designers, project managers, historic building consultants, product designers and other external consultants and craftspeople.



Projects

The Practice works on projects throughout Britain, the USA, continental Europe, the near East and Japan.The firm’s portfolio covers a range of commercial, institutional and residential developments; masterplanning and urban design; historic buildings; large town and country houses; hotels and many specialised bespoke projects.

Institutional work includes new libraries, for example Sackler Librarymarker in Oxford and Bordon Library in Hampshire; and health care buildings such as a masterplan for St Andrew's Hospitalmarker, Northampton.

Since its foundation the firm has worked on speculative housing from small groups of buildings to major developments. This has led to pioneering work in masterplanning of new urban areas for the Duchy of Cornwall, for example Field Farm near Shepton Malletmarker; and major urban extensions in Edinburgh for example Western Harbourmarker.

The firm has become the country’s leading designer of traditional country houses, many examples can be seen on the firm's website.



A depth of knowledge in traditional design is supported by in-house expertise on historic buildings. Projects include work to major historic monuments and smaller protected buildings and range from substantial alternations to conversions and extensions. Professor Dan Cruickshank acts as the firm’s Historic Building Consultant. He is well known for his publications and television work on historic architecture.
