Conker Living Ltd
Lifestyle 2021 are thrilled to be working with Conker Living.
We at Conker Living have a strong belief that everything should be designed and manufactured with solid engineering foundations. Our combined engineering experience spans three decades from car body repairs to automotive and aerospace engineering. We are very fortunate to have a chartered engineering team that has prestigious heritage from Rolls-Royce, Bentley Motors, Lotus Cars and Airbus.
We aspire to bring automotive and aerospace engineering standards to the construction industry. By using these principles, we have already achieved and exceeded building regulations multiple times.
In addition, our collaboration with Keele University has brought a new framework into play where the building is designed around the user, rather than the other way around. This is known as “User Centred Design” which allows us to be efficient in design from the onset.
The Conker™ was born in 2015 through the knowledge that a building should be beautiful, aerodynamic, strong, and versatile. We envisaged a contemporary, state of the art, desirable environment which could be adapted and personalised without limitation. A sphere was the natural choice due to its streamlined and structural properties.
We are now witnessing the growth of The Conker™ in various locations across the UK and are excited by its unchartered potential linking the rest of the world.
Designed by Cheshire-based automotive engineer Jag Virdie, The Conker is his personal dream made real. Jag’s experience with Roll-Royce, Bentley, Lotus and, since he went freelance, with aerospace clients too, has taught him to design with the customer’s comfort and safety at the forefront of design process.
Jag said: “Aerospace and automotive engineers have learnt how to integrate engineering excellence into understanding what the customer wants and I’m bringing this same philosophy to construction of The Conker.”
The versatile holiday home design means The Conker can offer one bedroom accommodation with room for a double bed; storage space for clothes, etc; a kitchenette; and even an en-suite with shower. It’s perfect for holidaymakers seeking the outdoor experience, without any niggling discomforts. But unlike a traditional ‘glamping pod’ should you wish to upscale, the unique design allows you to link multiple Conkers together to create a separate kitchen, extra bedrooms, bigger bathrooms/wet room, or sitting room. The only limit is your imagination!
The Conker is fully portable, requires minimum foundations and built to meet permitted development requirements. (restrictions may apply)
You will find the Conker in Hall 2, displayed within the Live Central Theatre, and Stand S233.
