Sheila Bird Studio
Manchester

Sheila Bird Studio is a hugely-respected and energetic practice based in Manchester, creating some of the best and most innovative projects in and around the city over the past 30 years. Constantly surprising and delighting clients with exciting and bold spaces, the practice lives and breathes its motto, ‘love what you do’.

At the moment, Sheila Bird Studio is working on the Circle Square project in Manchester – with huge projection mapped wall and stairway, and a sustainable food outlet, which even grows its own food on site!

 

Our inspiration for this project has been mazes, cages and secret enclosures

What was your inspiration for the HEART SPACE experience?
‘Our inspiration for this project has been mazes, cages and secret enclosures. We wanted to get involved with Mix Design Collective to collaborate with some brilliant furniture makers and product designers. It has been a fantastic opportunity to support an event that celebrates great design.’

What’s the quirkiest thing you’ve been asked to put in a project?
That’s a long list! A cannabis farm, dancing pole in reception, a selfie tunnel and a love tunnel – for starters!’

What do you think the current trends are in the world of interiors, and what do you think the trends will be for 2020?
‘Current trends include openness, industrial chic, biophilia. Looking forward, more flexibility, personalisation and increasing cross-pollination of typologies.’

What role do good materials play within the world of commercial interior design?
‘Good materials are very important. They stimulate all the senses and are essential for the overall ambience and character – they can affect our mood significantly.’
