Peter Critoph


Peter Critoph specialises in urban design and masterplanning work, with a team of 10 urban designers. ADAM Urbanism was set up in early 2010, as the urban design arm of ADAM Architecture, to reflect the significant body of work, range of skills, experience and prominence that the practice has developed in the field of traditional sustainable urban design over the past 20 years. Peter plays an important role in the new urban design projects from major urban extensions to new villages, village extensions and commercial housing developments. Peter has also been involved in producing ADAM Urbanism’s pioneering design codes that can be objectively administered without dictating architectural style. Peter joined ADAM Urbanism in August 2006 and was made an Associate Director in May 2007. He trained at Kingston Polytechnic.
