Student Housing in Norwich

Our developing interior and landscape designs for study, social and gallery spaces for a new student housing project in Norwich; converting a brutalist 70s office building with an abandoned jungle at its centre into a home for 650 students.

Our concept draws upon Norwich’s brutalist architecture and the quiet luxury of modernism, played off against wilder elements of the jungle brought into the interior of the building.

East End Women’s Museum

Following an open competition earlier this year, we’ve been appointed as architects for the new East End Women’s Museum. Manalo & White’s team will be led by Aoibhín McGinley and Lauren Li Porter. As an East London practice that is 66% women, this project is very close to our hearts and to our home. We’re very excited to work with the Museum team to develop the vision - a museum born from a single tweet that has become a truly empowering organisation over the last 6 years.
