'Habitat', a new sustainable residential neighbourhood

This innovative project from Skanska Residential, named after the Latin term "habitare," aims to transform a former industrial area into an attractive urban district that integrates residential living with modern technology and ecological practices.

Chapman Taylor is responsible for the design of the apartment interiors, common areas, facades, and retail spaces.

Phased development

Phase 1 of the project will deliver 124 residential units and six commercial units with a total area of 12,000 m², with the residential element being 10,500 m² and retail space of 1,500 m² (including a kindergarten). This is just the beginning; over 1,000 units/apartments will be built over ten years.

The new neighbourhood will include shops, a pharmacy, a café, and a restaurant, enhancing the local community's infrastructure.

Sustainably designed

The development is designed to target BREEAM sustainability standards, featuring rainwater retention for irrigation, greywater recycling, heat recovery exchangers, solar panels, electric car charger preparation, and green roofs.

Designed to be energy efficient, with practical layouts ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms, including duplexes, lofts, and townhouses with gardens and terraces.

15-minute city principles

Residential homes, work, and leisure activities are accessible within a 15-minute radius, promoting convenience and reducing travel time.

The project emphasises creating a vibrant ecosystem that connects people, homes, urban fauna and flora, and modern technology.

Habitat is a new neighbourhood that will be among the most progressive of its time, designed to current lifestyle trends, building an attractive new community that is highly energy efficient and incorporates key sustainability features.
