Ernst joined our Manchester studio in 2016. With an expertise in cultural projects, including the Queen Elizabeth Hall in Antwerp and the HOME arts centre in Manchester, he is currently leading the FCBStudios project to refurbish and extend Octagon Theatre Bolton. His experience on high-rise residential and mixed-use masterplans in Manchester, including the Beetham Tower and the acclaimed Kampus masterplan, draw parallels with our current work on Circle Square, on which Ernst is leading the private rented sector accommodation. Originating from Amsterdam and Porto, he now lives in Stretford and enjoys cycling into work on his Dutch bike.
