Nithurst Farm by Adam Richards Architects
Alexander Zaxarov
Mar 20, 2020

This new build, in Sussex’s South Downs National Park, was designed by architect Adam Richards as his family home.

Created in structural concrete with a thick brick skin and a black zinc roof, the house is a stepped volume with distinct arched windows that add drama and a sense of motion to the design. This outline also echoes the hills around the building. Inside, a modest entrance opens up to high ceilings that create a cathedral-like feel in the open-plan main living areas, while the bedrooms are stacked in the tall end of the house, over a more formal living room, richly decorated with artworks and large openings that look out towards the leafy surrounds. Richards’ references range from the formal architecture of John Vanbrugh to Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky.
