As an international residential developer we take full responsibility for creating an environment in which people can live fully and naturally and bring up the next generation. An environment that can positively affect home cultures does not reside inside the four walls of apartments, but spreads into the spaces between buildings, neighborhoods, and literally across the whole planet.

The community culture in the new developments is significantly influenced by the quality of relationships between neighbors.

Cities are evolving
like living organisms

And their importance for our lives has been constantly growing. At the beginning of the 19th century, only 3% of the population lived in cities, while today cities house more than half of all the world's population, and by 2050 this number could be around 70%. Consequently, the form of urban housing must naturally also change in response to the transformation of society, historical events, changing architectural styles and, in recent decades, climate change as well.

During this period of dynamic growth, the work of town halls and developers takes on new significance for driving change and shaping the appearance of our cities.

Instead of lavish but isolated structures, we must endeavor to design buildings and public spaces that add value, maintain a respect for nature and contribute to local communities.

At Skanska, we believe that the role of the developer is to build the whole, not just fragments. Only a valuable complex can fully complement the district and become a new and important part of the city.
Petr Michálek, CEO of Skanska Reality

Home cultures
in new developments

In addition to good quality of life in apartments, new residential areas must cater for diverse and dynamic life between the buildings. As developers we have to look beyond the interiors to the surrounding areas where people can spend their free time. A home is not only four walls, but also the space around them.

New developments should show respect for the neighborhood and the inhabitants who lived here long before their arrival in the area, which will help newcomers incorporate seamlessly into their local communities.

Residential areas of the future must be designed and built with the utmost respect for natural resources so as to minimize or eliminate the burden on the environment during construction, and especially during their life cycle for many decades to come.

All this together with well-designed layouts, top quality materials and high standards of design and construction represents the lasting value of the owners’ new homes.
