Halo - A Better Home

For you and the environment
"Recognising the need is the primary condition for design" Charles Eames

"Recognising the need is the primary condition for design" Charles Eames

Good design isn't just about what works in practice.  It's how it improves your life.  How it makes preparing dinner more enjoyable, entertaining friends more relaxing, or the Monday morning rush more bearable.

The space has been designed for people who have an active and busy lifestyle and want to make the most of a home designed for it.  Different elements that have been included for your convenience are the layout of the kitchen and dining spaces, the easy access to balconies or outdoor areas., and the consideration give to lighting.  We have embraced the idea of open planing living.  

The importance of function and how space is used has been considered at every stage of the design process.


How can your future be bright if you don't have the space and light to grow?  Design should let the sunlight in and give room to dance.

Inside we have created a single large open plan living space to incorporate both kitchen and dining areas.  This provides a flexible space that adapts to your evolving lifestyle and to accommodate your furniture and possessions.  The sense of space is also created through the enhanced ceiling heights of 2.5 metres.  The increased height is reflected in the fenestration, windows and brushed steel ironmongery, which maximise access to views and sunlight.  Th proportions and positional of windows and exterior doors have been designed specifically to enhance the light brought into the space.  Elegant balconies, glass sided corridors and folding doors combine to broad the footprint of the property.  This brings the outside in, accentuates the views and increases the sense of space.

From light switches to the flush cupboards, from the window stays to the door hinges, it is the little things that elevate a property. Much focus has been placed on the small details within your home as ha the overall flow and light of the space.

We know it is the interplay of the overall design and the individual elements that creates your home. The properties are all finished to a high specification and the different finishes have been well designed and carefully chosen.  

We have considered the aesthetic appeal of the finishes but also their durability and practicality.  Materials have been selected to give maturity to the scheme, which will only improve with time as Halo ages.  Again, this is in line with our ethos of Form follows Function.

Designed in 2015, to be of its time and to use cutting edge materials and techniques.  Classic design is future proof and will continue to shine in 2025, 2065 and beyond.

A busy lifestyle demands efficiency in all areas.  Efficiency from a functional layout, to the inclusion of innovations like a communal combined heat and power system in the apartment buildings, to the underfloor heating system to all rooms and the programmable thermostats.  We want you to be able to move from room to room with ease and to design the space so that everything you have is at hand.  

Efficient an also be interpreted in terms of environmental issues, specifically energy efficiency and sustainability. The properties are rated Level 4 under the Code for Sustainable Homes scheme with high standards of passive solar design and energy efficiency.

Enjoy the excellent design of your home.  Quality should always been at hand.

For Crest Nicholson, quality has been about choosing each element of Halo carefully and ensuring that it is the most appropriate and considered choice.  whether this has involved selection efficient and functional appliances for the kitchen, choosing attractive and tactile engineered oak flooring, or specifying which shade of Saloni tile that will set off the design of the bathroom.

We want the indoor and outdoor spaces to look and feel amazing now but also to mature to continue to look incredible in ten, twenty, fifty years from now.


Looking outside your home, the city provides a wealth of lifestyle opportunities.  Beyond the tourist trail there is a host of cultural happenings, innovative restaurants and tempting cafes to while away an hour.  

Cambridge can do everything from Michelin starred dining to artisan coffee, similarly restaurants ranging from the new innovative establishments to city favourites that are tried and tested.

Halo benefits from contemporary architecture from world-class residential architects PRP.  All properties have high specification generous interiors with an emphasis on light filled spaces.  This high quality finish has been extended to the  space surrounding the properties with a central park and courtyard gardens creating high value open space, and ample covered and secured cycle parking.

Our focus has not just been on the interiors and how they are used, nor imply the exterior appearance of the properties.  We have also considered the shared spaces around the properties, the vistas and views these will create, and how you may use and interact with these spaces.

The detail of each home is where the design comes in.  We have no only considered how the overall space works, but also how each individual element comes together to make it not only functional but also a wonderful place to spend time.  Appearances have not been at the expense of usability with materials tested for both their durability.  

We are confident that the aesthetic of the Halo development and its emphasis on light and space will make it a place that you and your family thrive.  We want you to share our vision for this way of living and for you home to enhance your lifestyle.
