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.

If you prefer to go straight to our work you can use the “our work” tab

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.

We are an interior design company based in Manchester, specialising in office refits and new developments.

We work closely with our clients to get the most out of the space available, making interesting experiences that users will engage with and cherish.

The Big Shebang is a web presence designed to show you our work and the type of things that inspire us. It is a constantly evolving and expanding universe of images and ideas so no two visits to the Shebang will ever be the same.
