Address book: Adam Richard Architects reveal their contacts

  • Comment

Adam Richard Architects’ favourite contacts

‘We are concerned with creating buildings and spaces that reveal and deepen each project’s implicit human situation. We approach this task through the creative understanding and transformation of precedents, be they at the scale of the city, the building or its materials. We are interested in technology where it can bring a greater understanding of man’s place in the universe, or tell a story about the building’s site and purpose.’

Geiger counter

We worked with an aerospace engineer to develop integrated lighting for this windbreak. He adapted a cold war-era Geiger counter to create light inputs responsive to cosmic radiation

Sanitary fittings

We use Bathstore products for residential projects where a clean, modern style is desired, but the budget is not elastic

Weldmesh gabion

This gabion wall initially forms a garden wall, becoming a rainscreen for the lower part of the building. Betafence produced a design that arrived on site flat. It folded up into shape like a bespoke suit

Cast concrete worktop and splashback

We used a cast concrete worktop and splashback in this South London residential refurbishment. Besides being extremely durable, we love the way the concrete gathers and reflects light

Copper leaf gilding

We chose copper leaf to line a series of lanterns in a corridor at West Dean College in West Sussex. The copper reflects and intensifies the natural light from above

RW1000 composite steel panel cladding

Working within a tight budget, we used Kingspan panels to create a crisp outline for this warehouse in Ireland. The composite panels allowed us to economically clad this large building

Arctic-blue glass

Acid-etched body-tinted blue glass forms the partitions to en suites in these guest bedrooms at West Dean College. The glass turns the en suites into light boxes


For this new house, high in the southern Portuguese mountains, we were keen to use local materials. Sienave is a stone producer and exporter. Its granite quarry was located less than 5km from the site

Integral sundial

This Gloucestershire folly was used to investigate geometry and nature. It is aligned to the cardinal points and the plan comprises two Serlian ellipses. A rooflight forms a sundial by casting a shadow on the wall

Aluminium framed windows and doors

The new build house in Portugal was near the Atlantic Ocean ­ and 1,000m up. The windows and doors needed to be robust enough for the demanding site

Stainless steel guttering

We used high-quality, rectangular-section guttering on this extension to an existing Georgian house in Wiltshire. It had to be aesthetically pleasing ­ and strong enough to cantilever

Bespoke joinery

We designed this bookshelf for a flat in Berthold Lubetkin’s Highpoint in London. It a scale model of a section of the building. Michael McHugh at Westside Designs was a pleasure to work with
