What makes good architecture? We believe that it starts with understanding a place: the people who use it, its context, and its purpose. Only by fully understanding places can we create sustainable communities which thrive.

We create buildings which inspire people, enriching their quality of life. Whether designing a new building on a sensitive site or reinvigorating one which already exists, we make a point of getting to know the people who will use the finished product – the people for whom the building matters most.

It’s an approach which celebrates difference. The buildings we design aren’t recognisably “ADP’s”: they belong to the people who use them, and it’s those communities which ultimately shape each and every one of our projects. By designing buildings in this way, we create architecture which is more sustainable, more creative, and brings more joy to the people it serves.
