Welcome home. Welcome home.

We are Swedish by Design and we help build communities around the UK through sustainable, high-quality construction and thoughtful design.

Created for a smarter way of living, our low-energy homes are as elegant as they are clever.


The Swedish by Design difference

Swedish by Design is a collaboration between UK development company Places for People and Swedish house manufacturer Trivselhus. We share a commitment to creating places that foster new communities, that are designed to be sustainable for people and for the environment.


Building smarter

Swedish by Design is leading the way in creating smart homes that give you more control over the way you live and the energy you use. We are the only building company in the UK to provide smart devices throughout our homes as standard, so you can spend more time relaxing from the day you move in.

Building smarter

Airtight construction

Swedish by Design homes are built to withstand the harsh Scandinavian winters, while keeping your energy bills low. All our homes are built in Trivselhus’ state-of-the-art factory, using timber from their parent company, Swedish forestry co-operative Södra. Exceptional building precision and extreme insulation provide top thermal performance and excellent soundproofing.

Designed for life.

We work with leading architects to create beautiful, Swedish-style homes.
