Upperton Farm, West Sussex
Nithurst Farm is an award-winning contemporary house. Brick on the outside, it rises to in steps to form a tower, characterised by arched windows. Internally, grand concrete spaces are enlivened by paintings, sculptures and tapestries. The house was published in World of Interiors magazine last year; the text from the article is below: In a valley bottom in West Sussex, something a little like a Romano-Palladian tower house rises from an old farmyard. The product of years of thinking, imagining and refining, it prompts comparisons with Elizabethan prodigy houses, the most daring of all English buildings. This ‘dream house’ was built for his family by the contemporary architect Adam Richards and completed just a few months ago. Until now his practice was best known for designing the Ditching Museum of Art and Craft in West Sussex, but this new house is a game changer. As Adam says, ‘We design contemporary buildings that feel as though they’ve always been there when you see them in the distance, and then when you see them close you notice there’s something really unusual going on.’

Pear Tree House
Shortlisted for the Stephen Lawrence prize and awarded a RIBA London Award in 2015. It has been featured in many magazines including Grand Designs Magazine and the Sunday times Homebuilding and renovating magazine. The house has been built around a 100 year old pear tree, which was once part of a Victorian fruit orchard, creating an internal courtyard bringing light and air to the centre of the building. The house is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day with the lowered snug in the centre of the building forming cosy retreat with views out into the garden. The building was designed to blend into its wooded back land context as far as possible and views through the building are defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees. The ground floor walls are cast in concrete with vertical timber and contrast the polished concrete floor creating abstracted reflections. The house features crafted joinery made from oak veneered ply with brass detailing. Two handmade chandeliers, hang in the double height void spaces at either end of the glass link. The smooth ply finish staircases create dramatic, naturally lit spaces from the roof lights above. The interior of the house is furnished with mid-century style modern pieces and lighting. PLEASE NOTE curtains are now hung in the main spaces.Waterside
