'Bow Riverside is so unlikely - who would have thought you could make a route under a bridge in the dark' Judging panel Architect of the year award 2012



Adams & Sutherland are interested in the full experience of the built environment, the buildings we use everyday and the spaces that are often forgotten around and between them. In addition to building projects we make strategic studies in urban and landscape contexts and are adept at steering complex projects from beginning to completion.


We have won wide recognition for our tenacious and committed approach to complex projects. Significant time is invested in making careful observation and analysis of the existing and historical situation around a project, including its physical and social context. We recognise that although the result may be simple the demands may be complex, varied and conflicting and our emphasis is always on the project itself rather than a preconceived stylistic approach.


We aim to deliver the best and most eloquent response, in such a way that the change makes a real difference to the lives of those who use the space, whether it is a piece of pavement or a public building.


We are shortly to launch a new website and there will be an interim holding page for a few months.
