Places For People

Places work when they have good homes.

At Places for People, we don't just build houses, we create and manage places. With 50 years' experience in placemaking, we know what makes communities thrive.

We build thousands of well-designed, innovative homes across the UK each year, but as a Group, we do so much more than that…

Award Comments
In partnership with the Moray Estate, Places for People has plans for four new neighbourhoods comprising up to 5,000 homes near Inverness. An exemplary
masterplan taken forward by local architects with local stakeholders and communities has led to the development of Tornagrain. It also forms part of the Building a Legacy initiative run by the Prince’s Foundation.
The masterplan provides a simply designed housing development within a village parkland setting with plentiful green space, treed avenues, and focal points.
We particularly liked the simplicity of the external appearance, the strong link of the design to local historic urban aesthetics utilising local materials of slate, stone, and render. Detailing to fenestration is consistent as are simple eaves and chimneys.
