Samuel Property, BayleyWard and Acre have come together to present Willow - an exclusive collection of homes that foster our innate instinct to connect with nature. Industry-leading builder, Minicon has recently commenced construction on site; the team’s expert craftsmanship is set to bring the stunning vision to life by the end of the year.
Nestled in a quaint Brighton side street, Willow offers more than designer homes. Immaculately designed and now being expertly crafted, this development creates a journey and an inimitable experience through the built space - guided by biophilic principles and abundant in sensory elements.
In designing Willow, the development team has taken apart all the traditional notions of apartment living. “It is about re-thinking typical apartment design and creating something far more enjoyable than just four walls,” the team explains. The result is a series of exceptional homes that integrate high-end luxuries not usually afforded to traditional apartment designs.
“We understand the benefits that having a connection to nature has on human wellbeing, and due to this, it is our role to connect residents with their natural sanctuaries - spaces for them to come home to, unwind and relax.”

The facade marks the beginning of Willow’s unique arrival experience. Greenery mingles with the architecture while elegantly arched windows create a flowing transition between natural and manmade elements. The soft arches and bagged brickwork facade echo the neighbourhood’s unique character and historical significance. Acre’s holistic approach to landscaping creates an elegant transition space that invites you to move through the lush gardens and the floating path over a sensuous water feature before entering your new home.
Interiors defined by simplicity, purity and integrity
Inside, BayleyWard continues the biophilic journey. Intuitive and purpose-built, the versatile, light-filled kitchen offers both indoor and outdoor cooking areas. Generous picture windows reinforce the connection with nature by framing the lush green terrace. Form and functionality go hand in hand at Willow; smart storage and planning ensure the kitchen is ergonomic and functional while a world-class suite of V-Zug and Liebherr appliances are concealed behind bespoke joinery.
“Willow captures intelligent and relegated living that is fundamental yet comforting at every turn. The palette and materiality were inspired with simplicity, purity and integrity in mind.”
Richard Newling-Ward, BayleyWard.
Willow’s spaces, while subtly divided, effortlessly flow into one another. The large, expansive floorplan is exceptionally generous in proportion and enhanced by a nature-inspired palette. The high ceilings add to the sense of space, adding a touch of incomparable grandeur. Expansive custom joinery and rolling walls hide an abundance of smart storage solutions while thoughtful touches of luxury deliver plush comfort. “We envisaged a living experience where the rituals of bathing, eating and preparing food could take place in nature. We were inspired by the elemental qualities of water, light and landscape, which permeate the space,” says Nick Readett-Bayley of BayleyWard.
The bedrooms and bathrooms have been envisioned as private sanctuaries, perfect for moments of mindfulness. A freestanding, circular bathtub anchors the master ensuite, backdropped by floor-to-ceiling glazing that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor.
A harmonious, elemental approach to living
Willow is certainly inspired by nature and brings all the perks of living amongst nature to luxury living. Nick says, Willow presents a harmonious, elemental approach, delighting your senses at every moment. Its biophilic design is the culmination of thoughtful research, and innovative thinking imagined for your health and wellbeing.”
Construction has commenced on schedule, with the development due for completion later this year. For more information on Willow or to book your private display suite appointment, click here.
