Event Details:

On Wednesday 20th March the Manchester branch of fbe will host a breakfast event focusing on people and organisations that are doing things differently within the built environment.

We have brought together four excellent speakers who are working on innovative ideas within the built environment sector including academic research into future cities, co-living, and an award-winning reinvention of the traditional terraced house.

Guest Speakers:

Nigel Banks, ILKE Homes. Ilka won the 2018 Sunday Times British Homes Award for their reinvention of the terraced street for the 21st century. Nigel will take us though the thinking behind the design development of The Hundred House and the enduring popularity of the terraced house.

Maria Brenton, OWCH (Older Women’s Community Housing). Maria is the UK Cohousing Network’s Senior Cohousing Ambassador and an advocate for OWCH (Older Women’s CoHousing) the UK’s first and only Senior Cohousing Community to date. Maria will take us through the story behind OWCH and the delivery of this inspiring development.

Tim Heatley, Capital & Centric. Capital & Centric will take us on the journey behind London Warehouse, a conversion of a prominent Victorian warehouse into a new co-living community, the first of its kind in Manchester.
