The Winter House

  • Ilona McKie
As Project Manager I was in charge of the creative budget and output at Winter House, a one month pop-up residency housed in the beautiful listed venue of The Welsh Chapel on Shaftesbury Ave. The residency incorporated the worlds of food, drink, art and music, creating an otherworldly Christmas experience in Central London.
Working with the Creative Manager, Production Director and contracted carpenter, I managed a £50,000 budget to create an ethereal event space over several rooms. Sourcing everything from specialist printers to create our in-house designed bespoke fabric, chairs, bar top cut to spec, tableware to uniforms, I executed the aesthetic within budget.
Following a few teething issues at the soft launch, I worked tirelessly to ensure these issues were rectified and the remainder of the fully booked Christmas party season ran seamlessly and the event turned a profit.
