At Athena, we believe that housing is not just about creating convenient, contemporary and flexible living spaces. Homes should also have a responsibility to its local environment, and benefit the people both today and well into the future.
That’s why at every stage of their concept, design and construction, Athena and its surrounding community of Eddington in Cambridge, have embraced an ethos of simple and smart sustainability for a new level of sustainable living.
As such, our new homes in Cambridge feature water and energy-efficient kitchen and bathroom appliances, such as aerated showerheads and taps, and A-rated kitchen appliances, to keep electricity and water consumption low. But our commitment to sustainability goes much further.
Here are five key features that show how sustainable living is seamlessly integrate into Athena and Eddington’s for lighter living with reduced environmental impact. (more…)

We are delighted to announce that Athena was successful at last Friday's Evening Standard New Home Awards, winning the Eco Living award.
The Evening Standards Awards celebrate and commend innovation and excellence in today's new homes. Judging is independent, decided by a panel of property experts and Evening Standard readers. Across the categories, the awards embrace the spectrum, from first-time buyer flats to luxurious mansions; from city centre high-rise towers to barn conversions, and from boutique apartment projects to large-scale regeneration schemes.
In choosing award winners, judges look for homes and developments that reflect, or exceed, current best practice in the housebuilding market.
