Housing and Later Living

We developed an early reputation as designers of high-quality commercial residential developments, and we have developed an extensive portfolio of work throughout the country. We combine our commitment to sustainable buildings and communities with high-quality design that meets clients’ budgets.We became involved in housing and later living developments after being highly commended in the RIBA McCarthy & Stone Re-imagining Ageing competition.  Our designs challenged concepts around housing for retirement and explored the possibilities for new types of communities and new places to live – you can see our drawings below.  This has lead to publication of our schemes and involvement in research into this specialist aspect of housing.

We have gone on to work with McCarthy & Stone, Redrow, Pegasus Life and smaller local developers, to create designs for housing, Extra Care projects, retirement villages and apartments.

We continue to integrate the research and learning from working with individual private clients, where we work with many retirees that may be downsizing or looking to build a new home.  This research informs the design of our larger projects where we design from the perspective of the individual who want to continue to live life to the full in contemporary well design environments.
