Studio Profile: Adam Collier

Prior to working at D.W. Arthur Associates Architecture as a project manager, Adam Collier was a woodworker, architectural model maker, and display creator for British Museum. He then left his London home to attend Harvard Graduate School of Design and got his Masters in Architecture. Adam has been working at D.W. Arthur since 2000 and has been indispensable for his construction knowledge, incredible hand rendering skills, and amusing British accent.

Adam’s favorite project thus far is U. Mass Medical Child Care Center because the client and contractor were deeply engaged and invested in creating a great space. Adam felt it was a truly collaborative process, from the early programming phase through the final installation of the millwork.

While not in the studio, Adam lives in a Victorian house in the Greater Boston area, and is slowly turning his backyard into a mini farm. He has five beehives and provides the office with fresh honey and, more importantly, home brewed honey mead. He is in the process of designing and creating a chicken coop and will soon be forced to supply us with fresh eggs as well. He still does woodworking projects and is happy to lend his tools for those of us who pretend to know what we are doing.
