Social Housing

Call 0115 838 9738 to discuss an upcoming project.



Our vast experience in the residential sector means that we are perfectly placed to support local authorities and housing associations Social Housing Developments schemes across the East Midlands and the wider United Kingdom. At Acres Architects we believe that the truest form of Architecture is the creation of “HOME”. The place where every human being; enjoys, safety, warmth, family, memories and a personal sense of belonging. We’ll conduct a thorough site appraisal to ensure that we can increase housing capacity on the project boosting the number of tenants who can benefit from this scheme.

Whilst also fully considering the Local Planning Policy in both design guidance and density to suit the local area. We also understand the need for strong place making and community feel in order to ensure that the developments of today do not turn into the struggling communities of the future. 

We’ll help you to deliver properties that are well designed to ensure occupants feel safe, secure and happy. We’ll work with you to ensure each property has the required space and amenities to meet the demands of future tenants / occupants. From access for wheelchair uses or provision for charging electric scooters we’ll make sure the scheme hits the mark and is delivered on time and on budget. Our experience in delivering outstanding design at affordable costs, means; not only will each property will be visually outstanding, it will look more like executive homes than traditional social housing stock.
