About us


Creating places and spaces that make people happy

Willmore Iles is an RIBA chartered architectural practice specialising in high quality student accommodation and large residential schemes across the UK. We are committed to delivering beautiful, viable schemes that really work for all involved. We create spaces that enhance a sense of community and well-being and deliver a return on investment.  

The right outcome for everyone

We find the balance between the requirements of end users, contractor expertise and the commercial needs of the project.  Our team understands the issues for institutionally-funded development.  We negotiate the design process through multiple stakeholders and navigate the planning maze to achieve a successful result for our clients.

We get satisfaction from creating schemes in partnership with clients that deliver real value and are a joy to live in.

Our expert knowledge of the student accommodation market and residential schemes, our passion for great design and our long experience, make us strong partners throughout the delivery process.

Together we develop schemes that meet strategic goals and deliver more for less.

The success of our approach is proven with 85% of turnover coming from repeat business with clients who value our ability to delivery.  Our longest continuous client relationship goes back to the practice formation in 1999.
