White Adamski Architects is a creative architectural practice, committed to delivering engaging buildings for both private and commercial clients.
We work closely with our clients and consultants to realise the full potential of each project within its unique context. Possibilities are explored with a thorough and critical appraisal of site and brief, before the emerging designs are refined, ensuring that thoughtful and responsive solutions are always reached.
The practice was established by Matt White and Robin Adamski in 2006 and we have a studio based in Clerkenwell, London. Together we bring years of experience in many areas – ranging from large scale urban planning proposals to interior fit outs for restaurant and retail stores. We believe that a close-knit team is key to the successful outcome of each project and we have built a strong network of talented consultants and collaborators, who are crucial to the design process and the effective communication of the finished building.
Our core services are architecture, master-planning and interior architecture.
As well as the design service that is central to each project, we also undertake feasibility exercises to establish a project’s viability, act as agents through Planning and Listed Building submissions and as contract administrator while works are on site.
The starting point for every project at White Adamski is always to consider the brief and our client’s aspirations alongside the cultural, social and historical context of the building or site. From here the design, materials, structural strategy and procurement method can then be determined.
We work as a team in close collaboration with clients, consultants, contractors, specialists and other Architects to realise responsive, original and intelligent solutions. Drawings, computer and physical modelling, photographs and hand sketches are central to our design process and to the communication of the work.
In this way, our team has successfully delivered private houses, offices, restaurants and buildings for mixed, cultural and retail uses.
