Places

Our towns and neighbourhoods are distinct in character but united in the purpose of helping everyone to flourish at home.

A new approach

Built around the lifestyles and challenges of today, our revolutionary platform of design, delivery and stewardship is an entirely new approach to creating places.

Picking our locations

We select locations that offer the joys of country living — such as fresh air and an abundance of nature — while remaining an easy, sustainable journey away from key urban hubs.

One vision

Our architects and designers conceive and design places from first principles. From community-wide energy grids to exemplary health and education facilities, every decision is guided by one bigger vision for the place.

Guided by nature

BOOSTING BIODIVERSITY AND WELLNESS

Grow your own healthy food

Community gardens are located throughout our neighbourhoods, providing a feast for the eye and the stomach. We're supporting farm shops, local markets and planting hundreds of fruit trees in orchards and back gardens.

Bringing the country to the town

Our neighbourhoods are alive with wildflowers, well connected open green spaces, hedgerows and ancient trees. We prioritise blue spaces and use rainwater for nurturing street trees, reed beds and rain gardens.
