The idea for the Acre started on a rooftop in Brooklyn, New York, where a group of artists, writers, thinkers and designers realized that – working together – they could contribute more significantly than any one of them working alone.
Conceived as a fresh and flexible way to tackle projects and ideas, this collective brings together the right team for the right project. Acre Architects, founded by Architects and partners, Stephen Kopp and Monica Adair now call Saint John, New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada home to build their growing practice.
The Acre builds its practice of Storied Architecture centered on the importance of inspiring our own stories, developing our own identities, and encouraging our clients to believe they can live better. Through exploring the power of the story, our built environments grow to convey strong and deep-felt emotions that are key to the structure that form our lives.
Acre Architects have been involved in projects that emphasize craftsmanship, functionality, local tradition, and artistic expression. As we shape our cultural heritage, it is vital that we do so with purpose, for ultimately – we are what we create.
