Co-Founding Partners Ian Simpson and Rachel Haugh caught up with RIBA Journal’s Eleanor Young on how they got their start, city living, their role in developing Manchester’s skyline, and some of their key projects over the last 30 years.
“To be honest, we just really like making a difference in cities where change matters. Look at a city like Manchester; we’ve brought new populations, created new neighbourhoods, public parks, buildings. Great Jackson Street has 6,500 new homes – that’s 15,000 people potentially living in a new area and we want to be a part of that. We want to try and change the perception of a place and in doing so, make it a much more enjoyable place for people to live and work and attract investment.” – Ian Simpson
