Jessica studied a Master of Arts, Economics, International Politics and Mandarin Chinese at Friedrich-Alexander-University in Nuernberg, Germany. For over 12 years she has worked in Sales and Marketing as a Key Account Manager representing four and five star hotels in London and abroad. Her organisational and people skills enabled her to progress and gain experience with some of the largest global brands in the Hospitality sector. Design, Art and Architecture have always been a passion influenced by her father, an architect and town planner. This has given her a natural skill to explore design detail and the ability to create adventurous design solutions. Growing up in southern Germany, surrounded by national parks, has sparked an early consciousness and interest for sustainability and environmental protection which over the last year has become a central point of her design schemes.
Pat Riddell, Editor of the National Geographic Traveller and his wife Karen, a Dutch Historian are relocating to a loft apartment in Lonsdale Road with views over a matured park. They would like the apartment to be light and spacious, clutter-free and modern with a Scandinavian twist, reflecting their passion for travel and conservation of the environment. To contrast with their hectic lifestyle their home should be like an “oasis”.

To design the entrance area of ecotricity’s new subsidiary office, London. This UNCONVENTIONAL space should have street presence with the DYNAMIC to attract attention as they want to be OPEN to visitors and passersby, a multi-functional design should encourage staff to spend time here – both working and relaxing – regular events of varying sizes require versatility. CLEAN lines, NATURAL materials and daylight as well as an outside space should be part of the concept – SUSTAINABILITY and keeping the space’s carbon footprint at a minimum are key!
concept of co-living that has strong purpose both within its resident community and also within a wider network translating sustainability and eco living as “fit for the future”. Bloom operates on the model of ‘hybrid’ hospitality which mixes co-living with co-working and sees short term guests and long-stay residents mixing together in live-work-socialise environments. Bloom gives a platform to young artists, designers and product developers through regular events and permanent art exhibitions within its space and by using them in future concepts and other relevant projects the foundation supports.
