We're continuing our work at Port Loop in Birmingham with the launch of a new community hub, featuring a new 'art house' by MAIA and welcoming the Floating Front Room. In commercial news, we're onsite across the country creating more new spaces for food and drink brands within our award-winning workspaces. Read on to find out more.

    This striking new structure in Cambridgeshire is the House by Urban Splash pavilion. Designed using super sustainable CLT, the space offers an immersive brand experience for customers at Inholm, Northstowe, where our Town House homes are now on sale. It symbolises our belief in design and is the first point of contact for all of our customers. “The pavilion is part of our mission to do things differently” says our head of design Olly Wigglesworth.

    We’ve welcomed two brilliant new additions at Port Loop in Birmingham. Sustainability group MAIA has set up a new ‘art house’ in one of our town house homes. Inside, there's a resident artists studio, and a community space for COVID-safe events like yoga classes and artist workshops. Port Loop has also welcomed the Floating Front Room; the first phase of civic square, its founders are passionate about bringing the Port Loop community together, serving teas and coffees to residents and visitors in the process.
