Adams & Sutherland is an established, design-led, RIBA chartered architectural practice able to deliver a full range of architectural, landscape and urban design services. We undertake a diverse range of work for both public and private clients, to which we bring a clear, imaginative and sensitive design approach and a commitment to engaging creatively with users. The practice is founded on a commitment to working predominantly in the public sector, and on projects with genuine social relevance.


Our client base reflects the breadth and scale of work undertaken; from the Olympic Delivery Authority, Greater London Authority, London Development Agency (LDA), British Waterways, Thames Water Utilities Ltd and Docklands Light Railway, to local and regional authorities, regeneration agencies, community groups, schools, charities and developers both in London and across South East England.


We have built educational, community and residential projects, including children’s centres and mixed-use developments, often within challenging constraints. We have also undertaken public realm and landscape projects, which range from park master-plans and vision studies to the delivery of new public spaces, new playgrounds and the London 2012 Olympic Greenway. Infrastructural projects include new footbridges and towpaths, and landscape restoration works associated with transport and utilities projects. The practice was an integral part of the team of designers and consultants who created the internationally highly praised East London Green Grid Project and we have also completed urban master-plans and area framework studies. In addition we have significant experience in refurbishing and converting listed buildings and in delivering new projects in conservation areas.


We are LDA Design Advisors and LDA Architecture, Landscape & Urban Design Panel Members, and are also Design Enablers on behalf of the Glasshouse Community-Led Design and Design Surgeons for Urban Design London.
