THE TRANSFORMATION OF URBAN LIVING

Do the majority of renters aspire to live in a flashy, high-rise hotel-style apartment complex that ultimately becomes a transient place filled with international students and corporate contractors?

The ‘hotelification’ or ‘commodification’ of housing will only accelerate the social isolation and anxiety that people are already feeling. People might initially move into these developments out of necessity or because of the slick marketing, but will they stay or start looking for an alternative once they have settled into the city? After all that we have been through during the pandemic, surely this is the right moment to stop, reflect and challenge our own industry assumptions?
Re-imagining the Office Experience

Companies will rent significantly less private office space, preferring a hybrid model.  People will come to the office not to sit at a desk all day but to connect, learn and be inspired. Retail will also be forced to adapt.


 We see a major shift in commercial real estate from a traditional leasing approach towards an integrated management model where the same on-site team operates all the residential amenity, retail, basement and commercial use office units. Offices will no longer have single function spaces. All common areas will be accessible and bookable externally by non-members. There will be a vibrant programme of events, exhibitions, performances, wellness classes, pop-up retail and brand partnerships. 
BUILDING REGENERATIVE VILLAGES

The phasing out of the EU’s Basic Payment Scheme combined with volatile weather, the prospect of stricter environmental taxes and increased shipping costs makes industrial farming commercially unviable.
 
We are working with landowners and farmers in the UK to enable a transition towards more regenerative and resilient land use models. From cohousing development, eco-tourism and events, to regenerative agriculture, natural capital brokerage and regional business development; we connect farmers and landowners to the ideas, talent and capital that they need to co-create thriving regenerative villages.
