Award winning Architect turned property developer, Martin Prince-Parrott from Blackswan Property, a Birmingham, England residential property developer, joins Bold Founder, Caleb Parker, to discuss the work from home (#WFH) movement and what it could mean for existing and emerging residential assets
The lines between work and life have long been blurred and now we’re going to see a blurring of the lines between the workplace and the home.
Martin shares his insights into how the world of residential real estate is responding.
Get ready for a new hashtag, because Martin believes we’re going to see the rise of #Resimercial - a Space-as-a-Service solution that’s a blend of work and home where people join like a gym with the flexibility to move from city to city within the network and access with their mobile phone.

About Martin Prince-Parrott, FRSA RIBA
Martin is an award-winning Architect and Design Manager for the innovative mixed-use Developer, Blackswan Property. After almost a decade in architectural practice Martin was driven into Property Development by the realisation that the seed of an amazing place is planted at the beginning of the development process, not the design process. Martin’s education started in Sheffield, where he attained a BSc in Architecture & Sustainable Design before returning to the University of Nottingham to pursue his postgraduate. At Nottingham Martin’s studies focused on sustainable development, data driven eco design, advanced timber construction and passivhaus skyscrapers. His design work earned him 2 design awards and a feature in the Architect’s Journal. After graduation Martin returned to the West Midlands, joining award-winning firms like Glenn Howells Architects and Gensler. Martin’s two biggest passions are healthy cities and inclusivity. In 2019 his work on large, innovative urban projects and advocacy for these ideas earned him local and national recognition. Locally he was chosen as a finalist for the prestigious, Birmingham Young Professional of Year Award and nationally he was recognised by PropertyWeek as a Trailblazer in the Residential development space. Additional Experience: Martin has served as Chair of the BPS (Birmingham Professional Services) Property & Infrastructure Committee, speaks at conferences and on panels about cities, is a visiting architecture tutor, volunteers as a Trustee of The National Youth Recorder Orchestra and is currently writing a book on how we can make cities healthier. His hope is that one day cities will be such joyful, accessible and healthy places that people will choose to raise their families there. Martin is a Chartered member of the RIBA, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Association of Corporate Governance Professionals, a member of the ULI and BPS Birmingham Future.
