what is hugg?
Established in 2017, hugg homes was born of the desire to provide a flexible and agile response to the growing housing shortage across the UK. The brainchild of the people behind Inland Homes, hugg creates bespoke, modern properties centred around container living, focussed on sustainability and built upon design excellence.
With rates of homelessness increasing, continued issues around property affordability and ever growing demand in the private rented sector, hugg homes has developed a unique response. Through the flexible nature of its properties, hugg homes is able to respond to the existing housing challenge by readily providing high-quality mixed tenure rented housing options.
hugg homes is underpinned by the key principle of utilising land often made inactive during the planning process. Using Inland Homes’ existing land assets, hugg homes offers properties in key locations across the South East. This gives hugg homes the agility required to react quickly to emerging local housing requirements, whilst also ensuring that otherwise dormant land is fully utilised.
By developing strong partnerships with local authorities, registered housing providers and other public sector bodies, hugg homes can provide affordable housing options for local residents and key workers who need it most.
The ‘pop-up’ nature of these developments means family displacement can be avoided, offering continuity of community services, education and family support networks. Likewise the developments can be used by partners as a temporary decant provision, whilst existing properties and estates are regenerated.
hugg homes also offers the private rental market a high specification modular living option that is able to undercut the local market rate, whilst delivering a quality of living much higher than the private rental market.
With such focus on providing ‘homes for the future’, the nature of a hugg home means they can be refreshed, reused and moved around easily, ensuring that they offer a truly sustainable housing solution.
