Nord provided strategic support to Backhouse, a design-led housebuilder which was founded on the belief that volume housing could be done better.

By collaborating with the UK’s leading architectural talent, Backhouse has elevated the design quality of a new home, creating light-filled, generously proportioned and flexible living spaces which respond to the needs of today’s contemporary lifestyles. Its focus on placemaking and the creation of genuine neighbourhoods which are integrated with well-designed communal spaces is a key differentiator of a Backhouse development, and creates a strong sense of place and community identity.

With a core focus of bringing architecture back into housebuilding, Backhouse has been able to produce new homes of outstanding design quality which give consumers the choice that they have been lacking for so long in the UK housing market.
