Eden’s managing partner Liam Kelly sat down with Future Arc Magazine recently to explain why open space and green landscapes are an integral part of our later living developments.
In an article published in the magazine’s August edition, Liam discusses Eden’s plans to incorporate greenery and gardening across all our sites, both rural and urban. He says, “Getting outdoors is great for health and wellbeing and underpins exactly what Eden is about. For residents, the facilities are an additional bonus: it is about the opportunity to go outside and meet their friends.”
At Pearl House in Newbury, a collection of town-centre apartments launching in Q4 2019, we’re designing penthouse apartments with their own roof-terrace gardens, as well as communal landscaped gardens split across two levels, including a courtyard.
Liam says, “Once Newbury is finished and you look down from above, most of it will be green!”
At more rural schemes, we have the space to be even more ambitious. We’re planning allotments and communal gardens at our upcoming development in Thorpe, which will encourage interaction between the residents and, by opening up areas of landscaping to the public, with the wider community too.
