ACME operates in the fields of contemporary architecture, urban planning, interior design and product design – working with private, corporate and public clients. The practice was founded in London in 2007, and our young and international team has so far worked on over a hundred projects in 15 countries.
On an architectural scale, ACME’s work varies across a wide range of functions, types and sizes – from HQ offices, private palaces and residential towers to department stores, museums, performance spaces and bridges. Recent work on an urban scale includes masterplans in London, Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Chester, Doha and Damascus.
We win much of our work through national and international design competitions and have gained recognition for our contemporary design based on a deep interest in each individual place and history, materiality and tradition; for innovation in pushing the boundaries of complex façade designs; for our integrated approach to structure and sustainability; and for our ability to work within commercial boundaries of budget and programme.
ACME is currently on site or about to go on site for projects in London, Leeds, Southampton, Coventry, Beirut, Bahrain, Melbourne and Brisbane.
