Achille Leclère studied architecture under Charles Percier and Jean-Nicolas-Louis Durand. After finishing his studies, he won the 1808 Premier Grand Prix de Rome where the final round topic was, "Public baths in Paris".
In 1815, he opened a renowned architectural atelier from which many eminent architects graduated, including the French architects Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, Paul Abadie, and Alfred Armand and the English architect Richard Lane.
