David Adams


Born and raised in Cambridgeshire, David moved to Brighton when he began his education in Architecture. He qualified as an architect in 2004 and worked with practices in Brighton and London, moving back to Cambridgeshire in 2013. He gained experience across a wide range of sectors including commercial office, residential, civic, listed buildings and science. Favourites have included Brighton's Jubilee Library, and the One New Change office and retail development (where he met his wife!).

David enjoys resolving and improving the technical detail of a development and has a particular interest in seeing projects through to completion. He enjoys using digital technology to assist the process but believes that the architect should be able to apply and translate a broad range of skills, manual as well as digital.

Outside the office, David enjoys photography, visiting National Trust properties (where he takes lots of photos), playing the guitar and console games. He was Chair of the Cambridge Association of Architects for 5 years, and is a Co-Editor of Cambridge Architecture, the bi-annual magazine of the CAA.
