Most homes on the market aren’t built with you in mind, so why not create your own? Bespoke design
In Water Lilies, a custom build eco-home offers you much more than the functionality and reliability of a conventional new-build. Designing bespoke lets you bring your individual sense of style and space into the look, feel and logic of your home, setting it apart from any other.
By choosing the number and use of rooms, as well as the layout and flow of your interior spaces, you can craft your home to complement your lifestyle and future-proof it to adapt to your household’s changing needs. Draw on the professional expertise, experience and creative flair of project architects, Marshall and Kendon, to sharpen your design ideas and find architectural solutions to shape your dream home.
Custom build eco-homes are available in Water Lilies, a pioneering property development in Bristol. The scheme provides the opportunity to design your own eco-home with Lido architects, Marshall and Kendon. Nestled in rich parkland near Blaise Castle and Kings Weston House, Water Lilies has countryside on its doorstep and easy access to the city. This green oasis is the perfect place for people at any stage of their life, offering comfortable, high quality homes, fit for your future.
Plot 7 offers a spacious mid-terrace eco-home, which can accommodate 3 to 4 bedrooms. Over three floors, there is plenty of opportunity to get creative with:
- Open plan living, to create a multi-functional space for daily life. - Flexible bedrooms, with the option to design en suites and walk-in wardrobes. - A home office or studio for entrepreneurs, freelancers and flexible workers. - A breakfast bar or kitchen island for families of any size. - An upside-down house - maximise the light during the day. - Large triple and double glazed windows throughout. - Staircases - fit out your ideal staircase in shape and materials. - A mezzanine for storage and/or living space. - Interior design choices such as exposed timber.
There are countless design options and flexibility whether your household grows or shrinks. The floorplans above provide an idea of the space available.
Designed in harmony with the slope of the land, this home has direct access to the outdoors on every level. The ground floor opens onto the central community garden, and the first floor onto a quiet private back garden with abundant woodland behind. Step out onto the terrace from the second floor to enjoy vast views and bask in the sun from the west.
Plot 7 sits comfortably within a beautiful row of terraces. This is the perfect place for those who wish to shape their future in a spacious and adaptable home with an intimate connection to nature. A Bright Green Futures home is the ideal setting for opening your door to enjoy the company of your neighbours and relax in the natural surroundings of the protected Blaise Castle Estate.

Future resilience
Water Lilies knits cleverly into the landscape, repurposing an old reservoir to form a shared garden at the heart of the site and a car park for residents below. Enclosed by terraced homes and with car parking underground, it creates a safe and green car-free space. The community garden also offers a multi-purpose community space for co-working and classes, where freelancers can collaborate and meetups can spill out onto the grass, with facilities for parties, a cafe and kitchen space.
Each home is built with sustainably sourced timber, and highly energy efficient insulated walls and triple-glazed Scandinavian windows. A custom build eco-home in Water Lilies is designed with an EPC rating of A, whilst the average UK home has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D. This makes home running costs are extremely low and creates comfortable indoor environments that are warm in winter and cool in summer - ideal for productivity and relaxation.
Water Lilies pushes the boundaries of modern home design. Homes are optimised with solar panels and air source heat pumps as part of a microgrid energy system, allowing residents to store and share electricity. This makes homeowners largely autonomous in energy use and protects them from rising energy prices.
Bright Green Futures won the 2019 Green Initiative Award for Water Lilies’ eco credentials, with Bristol Property Awards praising it as “a unique, fresh offering that reflects the vision of our city, demonstrating that Bristol can lead the way in developing liveable homes and sustainable communities.”
Bright Green Futures takes a holistic approach where residents design homes to meet their needs and create the community they wish for. Create your dream home, fit for the future.
