Adam Neo-Classicism is a style of architecture and design that emerged in the mid-18th century and was popularised by Scottish architect Robert Adam. This style is a combination of classical and neoclassical elements, such as the use of columns, pilasters, and entablatures, as well as decorative elements like swags, garlands, and urns. The style is characterised by its symmetry, proportion, and balance, as well as its use of classical motifs. Adam Neo-Classicism is often seen in homes, public buildings, and other structures, and is a still popular style for many modern architects and designers.
Adam Neo-Classicism was a popular style for grand houses, public buildings, and other structures during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and it remains influential today. While the style fell out of favor in the mid-19th century as other architectural styles gained popularity, it has been revived and reinterpreted by many modern architects and designers. Today, Adam Neo-Classical elements can be seen in a wide range of buildings and interiors, from grand public buildings to private homes and apartments. The style’s emphasis on classical motifs, clean lines, and attention to detail continues to inspire designers and architects around the world.
Robert Adam is known to have worked with the finest cabinet makers of the day including Thomas Chippendale, John Linnell, Mayhew and Ince, his architecture can be seen throughout the country and notably at Osterley Park London, Kedleston Hall Derbyshire.
