If you lived here

The interior design is by Rockett St George, who have carefully curated each space and fixture to align with the aspirations of the project, which debuts their new sustainable furniture range.

Materials have been selected portray a contemporary design, to be low carbon and require little maintenance. The Arbour benefits from an abundance of communal landscaped spaces, including a central community garden that will include vegetable patches, foraging, outdoor kitchen and seating. The gardens have been landscaped by the award-winning London Glades, to be self-sustainable over time and to provide a safe and enjoyable space for families to come together. The development also includes a re-use centre, an electric car club vehicle and electric and traditional bicycles all exclusively reserved for residents.

While the perks of Walthamstow Village are a mere stone’s throw away, you’ll have your own community on your literal doorstep;...

Residents can ‘live, work and play’ within the space, with access to a covered community garden with an outdoor workstation and kitchen for preparing homegrown food, as well as a reuse centre for exchanging goods between residents.

'For me, this development is watershed moment in British construction. The building techniques used have been groundbreaking and once I delved into the details, I was left inspired by the materials used and conscious of how our consumer choices can make a difference.

The project has been carefully curated over 5 years and studies embarked on by GS8 have unearthed issues associated with standard building techniques. With innovative ideas the GS8 team have set about to find solutions to assist this project and help move the industry forward, which in turn will benefit future generations. Purchasers have a rare chance to own a home that in years to come will be recognised as a masterpiece in construction, which challenges not only the way we build but also the way with live.'
