Town House is a new concept for mass housing that is a direct challenge to the established typologies of the major UK housebuilders. It exploits clever modular planning to create spacious, flexible and modern customer-designed homes.
We have taken the familiar pitched-roof form and turned it longitudinally to create a long ‘loft-style’ spacious home that is aimed at the urban house-buying market. The purchaser has the choice of two or three storey houses and the option of ‘loft’ or ‘garden’ focused living that creates contemporary homes for traditional or open-plan living lifestyles.
The raw shell of the house contains simply a stair, a kitchen and bathroom pod. A series of layouts can then be selected which tailor one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Space standards are generous, windows large and often full height and insulation levels and air tightness are to a very high standard.
Not only that, Town House is also factory-built to order, before being delivered to site fully finished. Four years of research and prototyping have gone into developing the Town House product, now in full production.
The 43 Town Houses at New Islington are just the beginning. Next year they will be joined by more houses plus the first Mansion House, the apartment based sister concept to Town House.
Town House will also be arriving at sites on Tyneside, in Salford, Birmingham and Birkenhead with many more neighbourhoods planned in other towns and cities.
Town House though, is not a static idea. It will continue to evolve, both in its construction, external appearance and the range of customer choices on offer. It will also be complemented by a suite of other new housing products.
