Our third later living project with Inspired Villages, we are appointed as Executive Architect to co-ordinate tender information and construction stage services to ensure the completed village reflects the concept design.

In keeping with the Inspired Villages model, the development will offer a selection of luxury cottages and apartments centred around a prestigious Village Centre - providing a focus on wellness with plenty of opportunities for maintaining an active lifestyle, socialising and relaxing.

The seven-acre site is located in a conservation area of Leeds Village, Maidstone, along with the new build elements there is also conservation work to renovate existing Oast Houses as part of the village.

The first phase, which started construction in December 2019 will be completed in 2021, includes the village core which houses private dining spaces, restaurant, Eric’s café, bar, fitness suite, spa, swimming pool, games rooms and hotel services, along with 53 apartments within the village core and three blocks providing 11 village apartments.

A second phase is due to commence upon completion of phase 01 and includes a further 50 village apartments across several blocks providing a mix of one-bed and two-bed level access units.
