Our Approach

Our History

Pegasus was born out of a desire to rethink the way the UK is addressing the ageing population.

While we are set to see significant increases in the percentage of the population over 60, there will also be considerable growth in the number of people over 85, with nearly 20% of the current UK population expected to see their 100th birthday.

Independent later living housing helps prevent some of the largest hurdles facing elderly people in the UK today. While the physical health problems that arise with old age are well documented, issues such as mental health and loneliness are still misunderstood and remain largely unspoken throughout society. Later living housing provides support on a physical and emotional level, improving the health, security and overall well-being of those who live there.

We want to provide housing solutions that take a modern approach to some of these very real problems.

Our approach

We bring together the country’s leading designers, academics, creative thinkers and producers to create communities that reflect the character of the locations and the people living there.

'I own my wonderful cottage where I can retreat and take full advantage of all the social areas where activities take place, or where I can catch up with my neighbours without any of the responsibilities I once had like looking after a large garden or dealing with broken boilers.'

Heritage and context

Wildernesse House Internal

No site is a blank slate. Each has a history and character that is sensitively incorporated into the community. We preserve listed buildings and monuments, and mature trees and native wildlife on our sites, allowing them to bring unique qualities to each community.


OBR Architecture

Our architects see their work enhancing the existing built environment. They research local vernaculars, materials and history to shape their designs, gaining as much satisfaction from preserving past architectural gems as from creating new ones.


Holmwood Materials

We create buildings intended to endure for generations, so the quality of our materials is excellent throughout, from the exterior to the smallest interior details. With an emphasis on longevity, external materials complement the surrounding context, while interior materials contribute to tasteful and versatile environments. 

Creating Community

Community Park Cafe 23a Leyton Road

At the heart of what we do is creating amazing communities. Each community not only adds to the lives of its members but also to the wider neighbourhood, knitting in to the fabric and spirit of each location. Inspired by the idea of the village green and the much-loved parks of London, our landscape designers create places that can be used by the wider neighbourhood, as well as the private grounds.
