We’re not like other developers.
Tackling climate change is at the heart of everything we do. We build beautifully designed sustainable homes and neighbourhoods that are a joy to live in and kind on the environment.
We work with local communities and community-led housing groups, empowering them to deliver homes and neighbourhoods tailored to local needs and to shape the towns and cities they live in.
We use an innovative, integrated design-and-development model, with an in-house design team and the latest manufacturing technologies. This allows us to deliver higher quality sustainable homes, work more responsively with communities and other partners, and even develop new sustainable technologies where we need to.
KIN develops sustainable homes and provides collaborative and turn-key development solutions. We work independently, with partners and clients, and as an Enabling Developer for community-led housing groups – including cohousing and custom-build.
We build new homes and also deliver deep energy retrofit of existing homes and rooftop 'airspace' developments.
KIN provides development management services at every project stage to community groups developing homes for themselves and their local areas. We also provide light-touch early stage community enabling advice.
KIN undertake architectural design and sustainability services in-house for all our development projects – all led by our qualified architects and Passive House Designers.
We also offer architectural design and sustainability services as part of our Development Management service, and as a stand alone consultancy service for sustainable housing projects.
We build amazing contemporary homes that are a joy to live in. Homes that are strikingly designed, beautifully crafted, full of light, made of healthy materials, and let people live more sustainably.
Our homes are ultra energy efficient and can be powered by the sun. 10x more energy efficient than a typical UK home, the tiny amount of energy they need can come 100% from renewable electricity - like solar panels on the roof.
Our homes are built using responsibly sourced, environmentally friendly materials. Thinking ahead, we even design them to be ‘cradle-to-cradle’, disassembled and recycled at the end of their life.
We design our neighbourhoods, streets, and homes to respond to the local context. We create beautiful places that knit into their surroundings, enhance distinctive local character, and respond to local needs.
We design places that foster strong, vibrant, inclusive communities. They are organised around green spaces and car-free pedestrian streets – oases where people can walk, cycle, relax, and children can play safely.
Our neighbourhoods bring nature in – from biodiverse landscaping and habitats for native species, to places for people to grow their own food. They enable people to live more sustainably – always putting putting pedestrians and cyclists first, and providing electric car charging powered by renewable energy.
You wouldn’t build a car in a muddy field, but that’s still how most homes are built. We use the latest digital design and manufacturing technologies to deliver quality and environmental performance, and allow customisation. With our in-house design expertise, if a solution or product doesn’t exist, we’ll create it.
We work collaboratively with local communities, community-led housing groups, and local authorities to deliver homes and neighbourhoods tailored to local needs. Whether it’s affordable housing, cohousing, or custom-build, we provide the support communities and partners need at every project stage – from finding a site to moving in.
We are currently delivering a number of exciting and innovative projects, including our own newbuild Passive House homes, community-led homes, newbuild and retrofit Passive House social housing, and grant funded research and development (R&D).
