Adam Richards Architects is an award-winning architectural practice with a reputation for making highly crafted buildings for the arts, cultural, heritage and private residential sectors.

Founded in 2002 by Adam Richards, who trained at Cambridge University, ARA has design studios in Shoreditch, London and Sussex. The work of the practice is characterised by a drive to engage critical, spatial, social and structural propositions to transform the deeper cultural themes of what are often unique objects and unusual sites in heritage settings.

In 2013 Adam Richards Architects gained international recognition for the critically acclaimed Ditchling Museum of Art + Crafts, which was chosen by the Sunday Times as the architectural highlight of the year and was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Prize 2015. A book capturing ARA’s realisation of the project, ‘Designing for Ditchling’, was published in 2015.

Current projects include: a learning centre, events space and café at Walmer Castle in Kent, for English Heritage; the redevelopment of Graylingwell Hospital, West Sussex; a barge at Paddington Basin for British Land; and new facilities at Arundel Lido, Sussex. ARA is also developing concepts for a new museum and collection dedicated to British folklore.
