our story

Acres Architects was founded by Multi Award-winning Chartered Architect Edward Acres.

From a desire to learn what the academic world could not teach, Edward started offering his architectural design services to family and friends on a multitude of private residential projects whilst completing his architectural education. With the intention to learning the ‘business of architecture’ and providing high quality design expertise to the small domestic market.

Clients and projects increased in size and scale, in parallel with Edward’s continued education and eventually full-time employment. Edward has worked within a multitude of award-winning practices of scales from 2 – 200 staff members. On projects ranging from £50k – £1.2b in construction value.

With the intention of absorbing knowledge and analysing how ‘The Business Model’ could be improved to best serve clients, and produce the highest quality design for the built environment, Edward gathered knowledge and experience to gain the necessary professional qualifications to launch the practice, and did so with an abundance of regular and returning clients in January 2015. A continually growing reputation meant that later that same year the practice began to employ further Architects.

We are incredibly proud of our studio. In September 2017 we were able to purchase a building for the first time, and since then we’ve worked tirelessly to renovate and remodel the space to truly be something unique and different.

Regular and continued growth in both staff and projects numbers lead to the management decision to re-brand in 2018.

Our re-brand launch event was held in October 2018 and attended by many property and construction industry professional, clients and suppliers as well as Sheriff of Nottingham whom cordially ‘cut the ribbon’ to officially open our new head quarters in Nottingham.

Commitment to growth

Acres Architects now has offices in London, Nottingham and Manchester and we continue to lead the way forward in residential design solutions across the UK. We pride ourselves on finding the best talent and utilising the latest industry technology available for both presentation and design skills.

Ensuring we are always one step ahead. The investment into our bespoke offices has already returned a massive influx of growth due to the increased offerings that Acres can provide. Our commitment to exceptional design and multi award-winning customer service has resulted in a fantastic returning client base.
