Create a bespoke eco-home in Water Lilies with Clifton Lido architects Marshall and Kendon

Water Lilies is an award-winning 33-home eco development by Bright Green Futures, nestled in rich parkland near Blaise Castle and Kings Weston House. Now with limited custom build plots remaining, this is an exceptional opportunity for you to design a bespoke eco-home with Lido architects, Marshall and Kendon.

There are countless benefits to designing your own home, and where better to do so than in Water Lilies? A green oasis where quality and sustainability are built into the fabric of every eco-home, bringing you comfort and future resilience.

Constructed with sustainably sourced timber frame, you have maximum flexibility in the design and layout of your internal spaces. This means you can craft your home to complement your lifestyle and future-proof it to adapt to your household’s changing needs.

One Water Lilies homebuyer, who bought in pre-planning, highlighted this: “We got to imagine how we would live in it today, but also plan for the future with our family growing and having options to support our parents if needed.”

An increasingly popular, contemporary way to use space flexibly is through open plan design. This allows you to create a multi-functional space, bursting with individual character, at the centre of daily life. If you were to link your kitchen and lounge, imagine the natural flow of movement and light through the space.

Creating casual places to sit at a breakfast bar or kitchen island could unite activities and liven up your open plan living space. It could be the ideal setting for both get-togethers and cosy evenings at home. For the entrepreneurs and flexible workers, why not integrate a workspace?

You could even turn your house upside-down: put your sitting room under skylights in the roof to soak up the sun and gaze out at starry nights. Alternatively, the top floor could be the perfect retreat for a bedroom, with potential access to a terrace on which to relax and enjoy the views.

Designed in harmony with the slope of the land, eco-homes in Water Lilies offer a seamless connection to the outdoors across each level. You can decide whether you’d like a room to open onto your peaceful private back garden or the community garden at the heart of the site.

Every eco-home in Water Lilies boasts an A-rating for energy efficiency, with super insulated walls and triple-glazed Scandinavian windows, plus great air circulation, so you’ll be comfortable all year round. In recognition for pushing the boundaries of modern home design, Bright Green Futures won the 2019 Green Initiative Award at Bristol Property Awards.

Bright Green Futures takes a holistic approach where residents design homes to meet their needs and create the community they wish for. You can draw on the expertise, experience and creative flair of the architects, Marshall and Kendon, to sharpen your design ideas and find architectural solutions to shape your dream home.
