Adam Richards – Nithurst Farm

Words Dominic Bradbury
Set within a sunken, green bowl in the landscape and surrounded by trees, Nithurst Farm feels like a secret world. The new family house designed by architect Adam Richards for himself, his wife Jessica and their three children sits serenely in this landscape. Clad in characterful brick with a stepped form that rises upwards to a tower at one end, it carries echoes of mill houses and Italian farmsteads. Nithurst feels like a fairy tale house, yet it is also feels as though it belongs here.
The house has been nominated for RIBA House of the Year award
