    US30 - Stories from those who know US best

    18 December 2023
    A 2 minute read by Jason Byrne and Rachel Thomas

    Happy birthday to US!

    All this year we’ve been hearing from those who know US best; friends, colleagues and collaborators who’ve taken the time to share their tales of the last three decades.

    Now their stories have been woven together into a chronicle of 30 years, offering not just a retrospective, but a compelling gaze into the future...

    Introducing 30 Stories, a newspaper that chronicles three decades of US.

    Back in January, we decided that our anniversary celebrations would be a celebration of collaboration, and a chance for those in and around our business to share their stories.

    The result is a 64-page newspaper. Produced by our inhouse team it features contributions from across the property, design, media, and creative sectors – including George Clarke, presenter of Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces. Writing in the newspaper George said: “I have always been a massive fan of Urban Splash; while many of my friends at architecture school seemed to be hugely obsessed by architects, I was slightly too obsessed with what Urban Splash were doing.

    “This was a brand that disrupted – with a rebellious attitude that I loved. They wanted to make change and transform urban environments to make neglected or abandoned parts of our towns and cities more exciting places to live. They loved converting old buildings into vibrant places for people to live, eat, work and play.”

    Other articles come from Professor Michael Parkinson of the University of Liverpool; the President and the CEO of the Royal Institute of British Architects both contribute, while architecture journalist Josephine Smit provides the paper’s editorial introduction. Manchester-based PR Lisa Ashurst, KOMI Group – operators of one of the largest digital media portfolios in Europe – as well as branding and interior design specialists, NCStudio also contribute.

    Our thanks to all the journalists, creatives, media personalities, designers and friends who’ve contributed. We hope that you enjoy reading it as much as US.
