We believe
in great
design

Great design is central to our business. It helps us to achieve our ambition to create quality homes for London’s city makers, and to drive innovation in housing.

We use smart design to make the best use of space in all our homes, building on the experience we’ve developed through our compact Pocket one bedroom home.

Homes from Pocket Living are light spaces that feel larger than they are, making the best use of space. We use lots of techniques to improve the sense of space, such as:

  • Big, big windows for loads of natural light
  • Single floor finish to create a fluid effect
  • Zoned lighting
  • High ceilings
  • Neutral finishes
  • Minimal circulation area
  • Bags of storage
