Our Story

In 2008, Edward Acres began working with his first residential private client helping them to improve their own home/work life balance through considered design and technical knowledge.

2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of the beginnings of Acres Architects (formerly Acres Architecture). Throughout the preceding 10 years Acres has grown to a multi award winning, RIBA Chartered Practice serving professional property developers and private clients within the residential sector – including; luxury apartment buildings, private rented sector and build to rent developments, care homes, student accommodation, multi unit and bespoke single unit residential developments.

Throughout the company’s history, the Acres team have been committed to progressing the careers of aspiring architects and designers, encouraging them to push the boundaries of design.

We encourage exploration of new construction techniques and the use of new technologies as part of the design process. This decade of celebration marks the significant move from the company’s humble beginnings to a bespoke office suite and company headquarters – featuring a purpose-designed virtual reality suite, creative studio, 3D printing facility and model making studios.
