Group 25

This project aims to conduct a feasibility study for a residential facility attached to Kingdom Life Church, supporting Manchester’s homeless. The facility will aid those transitioning from short-term housing. The desired output is a robust feasibility study for the new building’s design solutions on the identified site, marking a significant step in addressing homelessness and strengthening community bonds.

Hello! My name is Olivia, and I am currently a Master of Architecture student in the Continuity atelier. I have been a student at the Manchester School of Architecture since my undergraduate days, and so Manchester has become my second home since then!

During my time off, I love to get lost in fictional worlds and draw to my heart's contempt. I hope with this project I can provide some of my creative ideas, and in combination with my experience in the healthcare sector, add my two cents in creating comfortable and welcoming spaces for the homeless as they transition to independence and start their new journey ahead.

Greetings! I am Ali, presently pursuing my Master's in Architecture at the Flux atelier. Previously, I studied at Azad University in Iran, completing my undergraduate degree there. Being in Manchester, immersed in a new culture while studying, is an enriching experience.

I hope to contribute meaningfully to the project, working with our team to advance it and ultimately provide safe, comfortable, and well-equipped shelters for the homeless.

Hi! I'm Jinke, a master's student in architecture at Flux Atelier. At the start of my professional career, I completed my bachelor's degree at Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University and gained valuable professional experience in China. By now, it's super exciting to be continuing my architecture adventure in Manchester.

Our MSA LIVE project attracts me particularly due to its unique opportunities for collaboration and involvement in assisting the homeless. I'd love to contribute my interest and creativity to the development of well-designed spaces that consider all the complexities of the site.

Heya! I'm Manya, currently immersed in pursuing my Master's in architecture at Continuity Atelier. Originally hailing from India, I completed my undergraduate studies there and gained some valuable experience in the field of architecture. Now, finding myself in Manchester, I'm struck by the immense potential this city holds. Its vibrant and diverse culture stands out as one of its greatest strengths, offering endless opportunities for exploration and inspiration.

I aim to contribute to this project by crafting innovative and inviting spaces tailored for the homeless, fostering a sense of welcome and inclusion within society. These spaces serve as transitional environments, easing their journey towards stability and integration.

Hi there! My name is Andreea, I’m in PRAXXIS Atelier at the Manchester School of Architecture where I’ve been studying Architecture since 2019. I did my RIBA Part 1 year out in practice at Stockport Council, where I got a lot of hands-on experience. I’m a lover of all things creative, including photography, drawing and creative writing. I am particularly interested in the social aspects of architecture, as I believe the spaces we design have, at the very least, the potential to tell stories, raise awareness and improve important aspects of people’s lives.
