Arca Architects – Practice Information

Architect office based in Manchester

According to this English architectural practice:

‘What will someone feel here?’

That question is at the crux of all our work, a touchstone for every stage of every project you see here.

We have what is on the face of it a straightforward approach to the discipline of architecture. This says that we need to include decisions about the physical impression of the project in its conceptual foundation. It is not good enough to have a concept and hope it can be maintained through the rigours of the RIBA Work Stages. We need to be sure that what we draw can be built, and that what we build will evoke appropriate feelings in the people which use it.

4 Jun 2012 – Arca named MSA Award Winner 2012
They may be baubles and fripperies, but it’s always nice to be given an award. So it was gratifying to hear that the Parkkeeper’s Hut had been named Best Leisure and Cultural Building of 2012 in the Manchester Society of Architects Awards.

29 Feb 2012 – The Parkkeeper’s Hut
We’ve posted one or two new photos of the Parkkeeper’s Hut, taken for the 2012 RIBA Awards. They were taken in the flat light of a February morning, and reveal the silvering of the wood since last Summer. The structure is designed steadily to take on the neutral straw-colouring of the reed bed over.
