about sheila bird
We should probably use this space to tell you about how we’re a bunch of passionate interior designers, who can enhance your business processes and realize your objectives. How we understand the relationship between people and space, so we can deliver dynamic interiors that work time and time again. Or something.
But that’s all just words. Just waffle. It doesn’t really mean anything. The truth is that the Sheila Bird Group is a chance to do things differently; a desire to change, improve, inspire and reward. That’s why this site has been created to show you what we do and how we think, rather than just tell you.
This is what gets us excited: what kicks us out of bed, rocks our world and floats our proverbial boats. If you like it too then the chances are we should meet up – talk all about you, rather than all about us.
about this website
Firstly, this is not a website.
Yes, it’s a site, and yes, it’s on the world wide web. But the word website is such a rigid one. Websites have structure and order. Websites are full of facts and figures and click heres. Websites are static.
This is an experience: a journey, an adventure, a train of thought, a stream of conscience, a tiny spark, a flash of inspiration. But a website? Not really. Everything you’ll find on here is important to us, whether it’s a project we’ve created (look for the black boxes), a film that impressed us, a picture that inspired us, or a person who influenced us.
So feel free to have a nose around – take a tour of what’s going on in our head. You can use your mouse to search around the screen or zoom right in to the depths of our imagination. We’re always adding to it, so there’s no end to what you might find, but if you see something you like then get in touch – great minds think alike and all that.

things i have seen
Welcome to the Sheila Bird Group.
There's a lot to look at on here. A lot of stuff. Some of it's stuff that we've done, some of it's stuff we like, some of it's stuff we've seen in the news, but it's all stuff that will tell you a little bit about us – how we think, how we work, how we can help you.
Have a look around and if you’d like to know more, click the tab on the right, or get in touch.

I had a really frustrating conversation with somebody wearing a suite last week about what is Prop Tech … so I thought I would share a few thoughts Tech companies are so important to us all , they are the new manufacturing industries of the future. We are so lucky that Manchester has some of the best rising stars , and “yes” they hang out in buildings . Do you remember the Phrase TMT sector it means - “ The technology, media, and telecom (TMT) sector, sometimes also referred to as technology, media, and communications (TMC), is an industry sector used by investment bankers, investors, traders and other market participants.. no wonder they shortened it ! Yes it’s a word that was invented to explain something by people who didn’t really understand what was going on .. nobody uses it any more . So now we have another word its called “ Prop Tech “ people are using it to explain everything that happens when property and Tech meet . I wish these guys would get out more ! Tech is an enabler , and yes its everywhere ,but not just in buildings. Tech allows things to happen , I shared some thoughts about this in an article in Mix Interiors . We design spaces for these Tech tribes and I think that’s amazing because we get to meet the generation who are the pioneers of this movement . Companies come to us to create spaces that these dudes want to hang out in why , because we understand them . These people are driven by Innovation and nothing else , our role is to allow them a space for interaction and that is sometimes in buildings but it’s happening more and more outside of buildings ! There is a genuinely disruptive phenomenon out there. It marks a fundamental shift in the way office space is used. It may even be more accurate to suggest that the space is not occupied but rather consumed. It is based on a business model that does not see the people who use the space as occupiers, in the traditional sense, but instead as members. Tech allows that to happen. I think we need another buzz word .. how about a community ! Rant over 🙈#lovewhereyouwork #lovewhatyoudo #sbghugs @ Manchester, United Kingdom08 Oct 2018
