THE ICE FACTORY AT BALLARD ESTATE IS NOW IFBE.
IFBE alludes to two of the simplest words in the English language – 'IF' and 'BE'.
IFBE is a liminal space.
The word ‘liminal’ comes from the Latin word 'limen', which means threshold. It is the space between ‘what has been’ and ‘what if’ or ‘what can be’ - a projection of the future with a keen awareness of the past.
IFBE’s identity is connected by a dot. A culmination of several concentric realities.
IFBE explores how architecture, design and the arts impact life. It aims to open up discussions in a nurturing space that encourages spontaneity.
A place that belongs to ideas, not to ideology.
