    Live Well by Design

    How to live well

    ‘Live Well by Design’ is our promise to our customers, partners and communities. It is simple to say but hard to deliver. It’s a commitment to design, wellbeing, choice and sustainability.

    To help us prioritise the things that really matter we have five core principles that guide us in designing homes and neighbourhoods where everyone can live well.

    Live Well by Design

    01 - Green and blue

    Invite nature in and let it do its best.

    Green spaces in our neighbourhood dampen down noise, absorb pollution, give our kids a place to play and repopulate our cities with wildlife. Being surrounded by nature reduces stress and we are happier and healthier the closer we live to water. We need to prioritise nature in our built environment, we should plant everything that doesn’t move, use the rainwater we usually drain away to feed ponds, rivers and green verges so that every new neighbourhood is an oasis of green and blue.

    02 - Live well by accident

    A place to be active at all ages

    Better design of our cities and neighbourhoods can provide easy access to healthier routines for all ages. More walking and cycling, more time spent outdoors, in the park, on the water and in the garden. How our environment is designed and how it is connected can make a difference to whether we are playing out or stuck indoors, whether it’s easier to jump in the car or hop on a bike. We can live well with less effort by making active options the easy choices. Everyday activity that happens without thinking allows us to live well by accident while going about our daily lives.

    03 - Be green without trying

    Make low carbon second nature

    A future neighbourhood should be green by default, supporting a low carbon lifestyle that makes sustainability second nature. Good urbanism embraces the challenge. A combination of sustainable construction, energy-efficient homes, green transport options, shared services and more reasons to stay and play local combine to make low carbon low cost and low maintenance. Our homes and our neighbourhoods should be green in every sense and in every detail, making the things we should do into things we do without trying.

    04 - Live how you like

    Configurable homes for all kinds.

    We believe all homes should to be light and spacious so big windows and high ceilings come as standard, beyond that our homes should be what you make them. They should be a place that you can make our own, where you can feel at ease and live in comfort. For many of us the way we live and work is changing, we need to face the change, with a range of homes suited to modern life that can be configured by you and then adapt to your changing needs. And a range of options for you means a range of options for all, leading to a diverse neighbourhood where all kinds can live well at all ages.

    05 - Love thy neighbourhood

    A place to belong and feel at home

    A successful neighbourhood fulfills more than our housing needs, it should be a great place to be with lots to do and plenty of reasons to stay and play local. A successful neighbourhood offers us balance, privacy when we want it but also community when we need it. And while we can’t build a ready-made community from scratch, good design can create the perfect conditions to grow your own with generous space for local life and active support for local enterprise. A great neighbourhood is a place where we can be a local, a place we can belong to and where every arrival feels like a homecoming.
