How to develop small sites – an Archiboo/Rare Space conference

Thursday 27th September, 2018 | 9am-2.30pm

Black Swan Studios
2-3 Black Swan Yard

Aimed at architects, builders, property professionals and local government, our second half-day conference will explore the opportunities and challenges around being an independent developer.

Organised by Archiboo and Rare Space, the niche estate agency specialising in design-led homes, the conference will be opened by Robbie Erbmann, Head of Housing Strategy at TfL who will talk about some of the lessons learned from the 10 small sites TfL released for development earlier this year. Other sessions include how to find a development site, funding and a session on alternative routes to development including co-housing and community-led development.

Fast-paced and packed with useful information, the conference format consists of five topic sessions with three speakers each ending with a networking lunch.

We have over 15 speakers including Amin Taha, Amin Taha Architects, Steve Chance, Chance de Silva, John Smart, Craftworks and independent developer, Roger Zogolovitch.

Further speakers and sessions will be announced shortly.
