GROW, SELL AND COOK
Relationship of food and people
The kitchen uses fresh ingredients directly from the farm to cook the meal to be served to the consumers
The fresh food products from the farm such as vegetables, herbs and fruits are sold in the market
The greenhouse grows crops in indoor environment by adopting hydrophonic method
Community Farm Grow various crops in outdoor environment. Rooftop Farm Grow different types of herbs plants. Vertical Greenhouse Grow crops by using hydrophonic method.
Community garden for urban agriculture
The productive landscape or the farm acts as community garden that grow different crops which aims to promote urban agriculture in Manchester. The community involvement in the scheme intends to reconnect people through farming activity.
APPROACHING THE SITE
Landscape defines the entrance
Located adjacent to the Fairfield Street, the main approach to the site is noticeable from the main street. The trees are aligned in the way that creates a path towards the main entrance of the building.
RELATIONSHIP WITH THE RIVER
Creating a riverfront public space
The riverfront public space aims to connect people with the River Medlock where it becomes a place for leisure, a social area and a spot where people could relate with nature.

WORK + LIVE HOUSE STUDIO 2.1 This project is about a work/live unit for a botanist located in a suburban area in Manchester. The design process involves synthesising concept, tectonics, functional requirements, spatial organisation and volumetric composition whilst referring to site analysis. The final scheme presents a concept that addresses the everyday notion of â€˜homeâ€™ as well as space(s) to allow the occupant to engage with their work.
