What do you think makes a successful place 'work'?

Successful places work because people want to be there. Anywhere with an economic or a social reason for use which also has pleasing spatial characteristics will always thrive.

What is you favourite place & why?

Manchester's Northern Quarter – the place has so much energy and uniqueness. I feel revitalised when I've been there.

What interests you outside of work?

Family life, cycling, surfing, music in all its many forms and home brewing.
