Designed by you, built by us
House is a new type of home, designed by award-winning architects and built by Urban Splash. Family living, super open-plan or cosy nooks, you get to choose how much space you want, and how you want to use it.
House is a new concept that thinks differently. We make beautiful, modern, architect designed homes, where light and space are a priority. We build them in a factory to minimise defects, and deliver them to site, creating smart new streets and neighbourhoods.
Town House is the very first House by Urban Splash. It gives you the freedom to choose a home that suits your unique way of life. Choose how much space you want, how you want to live, and what finishes you prefer, and let us do the rest.
We're famous for big ideas
In the beginning there was no big plan, no strategy, no idea of what the concept was to become, just a wholehearted belief in cities, in design, in architecture and a desire to make things better. To make things the way we wanted them to be – different than they were before.
In the 90’s we helped kickstart the loft living revolution. Two decades on and times have changed. City loft living is still super cool, but we know the lovely terraced houses of the suburbs are calling to many of you. We noticed many of our customers who had bought and enjoyed Urban Splash apartments, end up moving to Victorian and Georgian houses on the outskirts of the city.
Once in there, most of them then strip out the internal walls and put in contemporary bathrooms and kitchens. So it’s long begged us to ask why there are no new build equivalents? And why is there nothing in the City Centre?
So here’s our big idea: a flexible, new build, terraced house, in the city. Your house, how you want it, right where you want it. We wanted to make houses with great space standards; high ceilings, big windows and we wanted to give customers the ability to alter and change the layouts both initially when they buy so they can specify the exact house they want - or if they are on a budget the option to buy a 'base model' now and over time improve and adapt. House is conceived to bring real choice to home buyers. To bring some aspects of self build to the masses without the need to project manage construction.
Not your average new build
Space not rooms
House lets you curate your home to suit the way you want to live.
Flooded with natural light
With full height windows and doors, impressively high ceilings and plenty of storage.
A modern House
House is future proof and designed to move with the times.
A smart House
Factory-built means higher standards and meticulous precision that are near impossible to match on-site.
A new community
House forms smart streets of modern communities, always within a good commute (sometimes a stroll) of a city centre.
Meet our tenants
Don't just take our word for it! Read what some of our fantastic tenants have to say about living in House at New Islington.
By building each individual house in the controlled comfort of a factory, it’s allowed us to achieve a specification far higher than if it was being done on site.
Factory conditions mean controlled conditions. Controlled conditions mean higher standards, precise workmanship and no days lost to the unexpected. Every minute detail can be meticulously checked and double-checked before it’s transported to the location, and whilst we’re incredibly proud of the thousand-plus square feet in every house, it’s the millimetres that make all the difference.
Everything from the big stuff such as plumbing and windows, to the finishing touches like latches and switches, is installed under close scrutiny. So it’s all ready to drop into place, on-spec and on-budget.
Meet the House family
You can choose how to design your House to suit your way of living, but we also produce some special editions, that are pre-specified to a design by a leading architect and bring something extra special to the House family.
Town House for heaps of space and flexibility
Town House is our original House design and it’s already an award-winner. It comes in two or three storeys that you can configure to suit your way of living, super open-plan, cosy nooks and anything in between. With full height windows and doors, impressively high ceilings and plenty of storage, House helps reduce visual clutter, maximise natural light and create a sense of flow between rooms. It turns out that old adage is true: it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it that counts.
Mansion House for apartment living
The apartments form part of a small group of homes called a ‘mansion block’, so you share your main entrance with a community of just five other homeowners. Mansion House apartments have flexible open plan living space, oversized doors and smart storage to create a sense of spaciousness; Generous floor to ceiling heights and a dual aspect will flood your home with light. And options to add to your kitchen and select your finishes will allow you to make your home your own.
Fab House for modern living
Fab House is a special edition of House; a unique and innovative design created by one of the most respected minds in modern housing, George Clarke. Using his years of knowledge and experience in architecture, George has helped us create a home that’s perfect for modern living.
