Post-Lockdown Living: gs8 Creates a New Inner-City Community

23.07.20

Pioneering property developer gs8 is innovating community-based, post-lockdown living with its ground-breaking residential development in London, Orford Mews. The collection of nine residential mews properties, forms part of their rapidly increasing regeneration portfolio, which will deliver a uniquely designed, sustainable micro-community.

Orford Mews embodies the lifestyle changes urban dwellers have faced during lockdown - the need for accessible green space, a small community network, and the desire to live sustainably in our cities, which are addressed by a community garden furnished with edible plants, Living Walls and roofs, a neighbourhood app, wellbeing space, a re-use centre and a dedicated Electric Car club.

The development has been realised by gs8, architect Michael Lynas of Studio Anyo and KLH Sustainability consultants have combined their talents to create a revolutionary new approach for residential development.

Ben Spencer, Co-Founder, gs8 said, “Our Orford Mews development will feature a number of innovative benefits for residents, including a self-sufficient communal garden where residents will be able to grow and pick fresh fruits and vegetables and a wellness centre providing a flexible space for all types of wellbeing activities. Air quality will be enhanced by cultivating bespoke living moss roofs, green walls and a significant increase of biodiversity on the site, using biophilic principles to further improve occupants wellbeing and mental health.”

Kirsten Henson, KLH Sustainability comments, "The Orford Mews project has given us the chance to redefine design parameters and explore new ideas for creating inner-city zero carbon homes. First and foremost the residents need to be happy in their homes and community, with sustainable lifestyle choices made easy through the design philosophy of the Mews. The collaborative approach to design and delivery doesn't finish at construction, we will work in partnership with the residents to help them understand and reduce their energy consumption and ultimately live low carbon lifestyles in an urban environment."
