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

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.
