Sustainable urban developer Citu has unveiled the first CGIs and detailed designs for its ground-breaking Citu Home – a new timber framed housing system which will create one of the most airtight and energy efficient homes in the world.

The Citu Home will be a game changer in the fight against climate change. It will offer unrivalled energy performance – up to ten times more energy efficient than a standard modern UK home* alongside a factory-built technique which will allow Leeds-based Citu to manufacture the homes on a mass-scale, creating a climate conscious solution to the UK’s housing crisis.

The homes will be built on site at the developer’s Climate Innovation District in Leeds; the UK’s first urban low carbon neighbourhood and the first ecologically pioneering District of its scale in Europe. The District, which straddles the River Aire, will feature more than 500 low carbon Citu Homes including apartments and houses, alongside manufacturing, leisure, offices and climate resilient public realm in the heart of city’s landmark South Bank regeneration project.
