Who we are

Through our pioneering work, Dandi is changing the face of city living.

WE CREATE BETTER LIVING SPACES

At Dandi we feel a genuine responsibility to enhance people’s lives, and we go to extraordinary lengths to achieve this. Our team is constantly challenging the norms to find better and more beautiful solutions. We create places where you can thrive in your own space, surrounded by a wider community to which you belong. Dandi is a family business. We are not simply developers. We have our own manufacturing facilities in London, a growing team, and a vision for creating a better kind of city living.

WE PLAN FOR LONG TERM SUSTAINABILITY

As a family business we naturally think long term. We reuse unwanted buildings. We source 100% renewable energy where possible. We select fabrics, colours and lighting that positively influence how you live, work and feel. We choose suppliers who share our values. And we devise wellbeing programmes for our residents. Everything works together to create exemplary modern living spaces.

WE DELIVER INGENIOUS INTERIOR DESIGN

Dandi’s award-winning homes have been created with a passion for ergonomic design. We care about every detail. Our designs combine elegance, quality materials and ingenious space optimisation. Our lighting design is award-winning and simulates natural daylight. Our flying bed, ‘Happy Light’©, activated carbon air purifiers and volatile organic compound (VOC) compliant products promote wellbeing. This is an advanced living solution with a heart.

WE CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITIES

We build spaces for you to explore, connect and be healthy. These include a wellness studio, games rooms, garden terraces, as well as lounge bar and cafe. Activities and events include pilates, yoga, live music, supper clubs and micro-theatre events. We promote local artists and performers who come into our shared spaces to mix with residents. And during the day the co-working spaces create a different kind of dynamic. All these connections make the difference between a building and a home.
