Acanthus WSM Architects is an award winning, multi-disciplinary practice. With over 30 years of experience we have an extensive portfolio of clients and projects with particular expertise in all residential sectors, urban regeneration, community and healthcare sectors. Our work is characterised by thoughtful design where we strive to create places and spaces that people enjoy using. We recognise the importance of pragmatic design solutions and attention to detail. The core philosophy of the practice is to provide our clients with the highest quality of service.


Based in the centre of Leeds, the company operates throughout the country and has an associated office in Newcastle-upon-Tyne In 2001, recognising the very specific skill set required to work on listed buildings, we set up Woodhall, a specialist planning and conservation consultancy that is now involved in all aspects of the historic environment


AWSM is also a member of Acanthus Associated Architects, a national network of independent practices united by a desire for excellence in both new design and conservation whilst supporting a shared commitment to continuing professional development.
