Bradford Community Housing Trust
FABRIC (Forum for the Arts in Bradford) commissioned work to determine the level of interest in and appeal of Live-Work units for artists. At the core of the research was the artist's experience of working from home or in a studio, and the impact of that on their work/life balance and personal creativity. From this flowed a series of experiential and practical recommendations which materially informed the next stages of the project.
Lisa helped Fabric carry out a feasibility study into the creation of a number of Live/Work units in Bradford. Using her expertise Lisa was able to draw out crucial information from a group of artists to whom live/work was a relatively new concept. This has had a significant impact on subsequent design and other decisions.
