ADAM Architecture is an architecture and urban design practice in the UK with offices in Winchester and London. The practice specialises in contemporary traditional and classical design, commonly known as New Classical Architecture.


The Practice was established in Winchester in 1955 and became incorporated in 1986. The name was changed to Robert Adam Architects in 1992 and to ADAM Architecture in March 2010. The practice works on projects throughout Britain, the USA, continental Europe, the Middle East, India and Japan. The team of around 75 staff includes architects, technologists, urban designers, project managers, craftspeople, administrative support staff, and Dan Cruickshank as historic building consultant.

There are five equal-equity directors: Robert Adam, Nigel Anderson, Paul Hanvey, Hugh Petter and George Saumarez Smith. Robert Adam was awarded the renowned Driehaus Architecture Prize in 2017.
