Stewart Milne design review seeks to build character
May 18 2021
Stewart Milne Homes have completed a redesign of its range of house types to be brought to market across Scotland and North West England over the next two years.
With a focus on flexibility, functionality and space the new range adapts to changing consumer expectations amid a series of Coronavirus imposed lockdowns.
Stuart Henderson, group product and design director at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “Following extensive customer research, we set out clear design principles which are at the heart of every new design. These are: simple elegance, supremely functional and appealing. Our design teams reviewed how people move around and use their home, examining what they do in each room and what they need as a result.
"This has shaped the new lay-outs which are much more functional, including utility rooms with sinks, showers as standard in all family bathrooms, direct access into gardens from kitchens and utility rooms, larger windows and options for a home office on the ground floor, as well as better usable space throughout.
"Our approach to new developments means that we will leave a legacy we can be proud of with places that have soul, individuality and character, shaped around the way people live.”
As well as focussing on individual homes the housebuilder has also developed a new framework to guide the layout of new developments to ensure that every estate employs unique elements that reflect local characteristics through the choice of materials, landscaping and custom features.
The sad truth is nobody cares. Design, never mind good design, holds no value in our UK society.
Unfortunately, Joe Public will continue to buy into such mediocrity, which the housebuilders then believe then vindicates their choices......
