LDF 2023: How can design and architecture foster well-being?

On the 21st September, co-founding director Richard Holland, participated in a panel discussion hosted by Inhabit Hotel Southwick Street for London Design Festival 2023.

It was a thought-provoking evening that delved into how design and architecture can foster both individual and collective wellbeing and the profound impact of design on our daily lives, as exemplified by Inhabit Hotels and their esteemed community partners. It was very inspiring hearing from fellow panelists, Sophie Garnier, founder of the social enterprise homewares brand Kalinko; and Marie Carlise, co-founder of the London-based bespoke furniture maker Goldfinger, on all the work they do. And a big thank you to our fantastic moderator, Josh Fehnert, Editor of Monocle, for steering the conversation so brilliantly!

Thank you to everyone that came and engaged in this highly stimulating dialogue, hopefully more opportunities will arise for us to explore the fascinating interplay between design, architecture, and wellbeing soon!
