House by Urban Splash appoint Nest to create forward-thinking interiors
An award-winning regeneration company has continued its mission of breathing new life into buildings through its work with Nest Contracts in reimagining the traditional residential sales suite in its House pavilion project.
Located in the new neighbourhood of Inholm in Cambridgeshire, this is the newest neighbourhood being created by House by Urban Splash – the modern housebuilder and sister brand to Urban Splash which is creating new homes using modern methods of construction.
The project will use a combination of touchscreen displays, virtual reality, architectural models and bespoke publications, allowing homebuyers to explore the properties set to reach completion.
Potential buyers will also have the opportunity to explore the future vision for the contemporary Fenland village, delving into the history of the location through the innovations on offer.
The minimalist structure, which welcomes customers into an exposed timber interior, features two oversized pitched roofs, filling the suite with natural light. It houses a state-of-the-art combined reception and multi-media exhibition space, alongside a remote workspace and sales suite.
The pavilion is an architecturally iconic sales centrepiece in which House by Urban Splash will base its sales teams. Working closely with Nest Contracts, the self-serve website which provides exclusive access to the leading international furniture and lighting brands, House by Urban Splash has been able to source luxury furniture and accessories which complement the modern interior.
Brands such as Ferm Living and Muuto, which were used both for their style and availability, allowed the interior designers to incorporate dark bold colours in order to successfully complement the space. Pieces such as the Ferm Living Turn Sofa and Muuto Airy Coffee Table were specified as key sculptural shapes.
A luxury design destination based in South Yorkshire, Nest’s business-to-business arm, Nest Contracts, delivers furniture, lighting and accessory design and installation services to property developers, interior designers, architects and electrical wholesalers across the UK.
Commenting on the project the retailers’ Business Development Consultant, Gemma Trebble, said: “Urban Splash is one of the most innovative and creative regeneration developers in the UK, and we’re delighted to have had the opportunity to work with them to bring their vision for the House Pavilion project to life.”
“We are already working with them on further House projects and are looking forward to see the completion of those.”
Working with clients to complete projects where possible in line with the Covid-19 restrictions, House by Urban Splash is just one of the nation-wide clients that Nest has facilitated installations for in recent months. In 2019, Nest was also appointed to furnish the sales office and showroom of the historic Park Hill building in Sheffield – one of the earliest examples of Brutalist architecture in Britain.
