QUALITY HOMES FOR THE MANY
We are a mission-driven business (think The Big Issue) that builds high-quality, affordable homes in the London area. Unlike profit-only developers, we don’t charge a premium to line shareholders’ pockets. Any profits are reinvested in our mission to make affordable housing available to every hard-working Londoner.
We use modern construction technology which allows us to build faster and cheaper than traditional developments. And our legal framework ensures our homes stay affordable, even when they change hands.
Humans evolved in small villages so our brains are wired to feel safest, happiest and most comfortable in groups of 150 or less. The design of our communities draws on thousands of years of of the most harmoniously cosmopolitan, successful British and European communities. We create small diverse villages that are welcoming, sustainable and comfortable.
At the heart of each of our communities is a village green where you’ll bump into, chat with and get to know your neighbours.
Your children can play safely as you watch over them from your kitchen or office window.
Of course we live in the 21st Century, where evidence shows that diversity and human connection makes communities safer, culturally richer and more creative, so we go the extra mile to make sure people from a diverse range of social and ethnic backgrounds feel safe and welcomed into every new Wikivillage community.
Our communities are designed so you can enjoy the benefits of village life while living in the thriving metropolis of London. We believe city living should be made to fit people and their families.
You and your family can enjoy their own allotment plot in the community garden at the heart of every Wikivillage community.
