Neighbouring Projects care about the places you live, communities, and the environment. That’s why thoughtful design, people, and sustainability are at the heart of what we do.

Imagine you could slash your costs and carbon footprint for a home makeover, extension, or loft conversion, simply by teaming up with your next-door friends. In our eyes it’s a win-win for all; neighbourhoods sparkle, our planet breathes easier, and we all get a little closer.

Neighbouring Projects started as an idea. Andrew, an architect, questioned why the terraced houses in his home neighbourhood were deteriorating, and began work on solution. His proposal was commended by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2020. After refinement and support from Innovate UK, Neighbouring Projects was born, bringing the concept of joint home improvements to reality.

About Andrew

From a young age, Andrew was drawn to the world of architecture, fuelled by a passion for art and science and a determination to impact people's lives positively — a principle he upholds to this day. On his career path he has contributed to some of Manchester’s most iconic projects, including the St Michael’s development and the Manchester Engineering Campus. Before founding Andrew Jackson Architects, he honed his skills at Stirling Prize winning firm Hodder + Partners, and later, high-end residential specialists Kimble Roden.

Andrew's journey has extended to London and the Netherlands, where he spent two transformative years studying for his master's at TU Delft, and Dutch design principles still play a key influence on his design approach. Beyond his firm, he is invested in nurturing the next generation of architects. He has tutored at Manchester School of Architecture and the University of Central Lancashire and sits on the council for the Manchester Society of Architects.
