Relocation, rebrand and recruitment for growing Leeds based architect's practice

Edward Architects has relocated its team to a new base at Marshall’s Mill on the Round Foundry estate in the heart of Holbeck Urban Village to accommodate continued and future business growth.

The move coincides with a brand refresh, new company name change to Edward Architects (from Edward Architecture) and latest new hire. The 14-strong team moves from Whitehall Waterfront in Leeds to 2,000 sq ft of creative office space at the refurbished Grade II former flax mill over 5 years lease terms.

The new, ‘characterful’ office accommodation gives the company capacity to double its workforce in the future and deliver more projects for its expanding client base across growth sectors including housing, master planning, modular construction and court protection disabled access.

The architectural practice has also rolled out a rebranding programme which includes a refreshed new logo, new company name, as well as the launch of a new corporate website. To support its growing court protection work, Edward Architects has also hired Craig Darby as Architectural Technologist to further bolster the existing, expanding team.

Craig joins the practice from GSS Architecture where he was an architect apprentice working across a range of schemes including the lead on a large-scale, high-budget university campus project.

Graham Edward, MD, Edward Architects commented: “This is an exciting time for us as a business and we are delighted to house the team in a new home at Marshall’s Mill which dovetails perfectly with our rebranding work.

“Marshall’s Mill has attracted a range of businesses from creatives and film/tv production companies to professional services organisations, tech firms and more, so we are in good company. We continue to grow in our core sectors and have ambitious plans to continue our strategic expansion over the next 5 years.

“Marshall’s Mill is one of the most distinctive office developments in Leeds with a wonderful heritage and has been transformed into a creative office, living space with fantastic amenities and facilities close to the city centre, it’s a hugely inspiring place to work and is the perfect business location to accommodate our business growth plans.”
