Happier Housing – David Mikhail

31 January @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm

Location: Museum of Bath Architecture, BA1 5NA

Price: £14 (£7 concessions)

David is a Founding Director of Mikhail Riches and has been responsible for Goldsmith Street for Norwich City Council, The Housing Supply Programme for The City of York and post graduate accommodation for Queens’ College, Cambridge.

Mikhail Riches started life by developing a slice of unpromising land at Church Walk Hackney, which went on to become the RIBA London Building of the Year 2013. With Mikhail Riches, David is now realising his ambition of working with a team of talented practitioners to deliver environmentally and socially engaged places around the UK.

David’s talk will cover their work at Park Hill, a grade 2 listed brutalist housing scheme in Sheffield, the original ‘Streets in the Sky’, with 1000 homes within Europe’s largest listed building. How it has been successfully retrofitted to hugely improve its energy performance, whilst gently tweaking and enhancing its many assets to make a great a place to live and work. And Goldsmith Street in Norwich, the celebrated 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize winning social housing scheme, using a low rise, medium density street-based approach, combined with the latest building technologies to deliver super low energy bills for its residents (often in fuel poverty) with walkable streets, secure ginnels and gardens for social cohesion and healthier lifestyles.
