Keeping it local
Our developments respond to what is important locally. We stitch them into the landscape by using colours and textures that mirror other houses in the area, by working with the landform and existing features. This is what we mean when we say we’re keeping it local.
A mirror to the landscape
When we see a view, we want to make the most of it. When we see a local landmark, we want to incorporate it, where possible. We connect our developments to wildlife corridors to help keep you connected to nature. Our communities are sensitive to their surroundings and give residents an immediate sense of place.
Adapting to history
When we saw all the beautiful, natural stone used around Horsforth Vale, near Leeds, we knew we had to incorporate it within our Horsforth Vale development. The addition of York stone in the homes and dry stone walls through the site are a sympathetic nod to the local area and give the development an instant sense of legacy.
Connected to existing community
It’s not all about materials and design. Keeping it local is about people. We love to connect with pre-existing communities and work closely with them to find out what we can do to help and improve the wider area; from investments in sports facilities, to new transport links.
Understanding the unique and important characteristics of the site and its locality helps us to create a distinctive and responsive sense of place.
