A city environment seems to be a far cry from the ideal location to raise a family. However, a growing number of people are choosing city over suburban living. Working parents and their children within the city of Manchester need a space, a family inclusive environment, which they can use all day every day. It was imperative to design a space that would provide a more convenience lifestyle. Making the everyday juggle of work and home life as stress free as possible. Kin was created to provide a space and facilities for a network of working parents to flourish. The ethos of Kin is to support, entertain and retain working parents and their young families within the city of Manchester. The facilities at Kin aim to reduce the time wasted on chores, allowing parents to have more quality free time to spend with their children.
