Rob Phillips featured in HBD blog on NZC Island workspace

This week, Rob Phillips caught up with HBD to discuss the various reference points serving as inspiration for Manchester's next-gen workspace, Island.

Rob, leading on the highly sustainable project, has drawn inspiration from the City's long affiliation with William Morris, his thinking 'A Factory As It Might Be' - calling for fewer divisions between workplace, home and leisure space - and the British textile arts movement of the late 19th Century. 

References to these can be found throughout the building - from perforated screens to the layout.
