The Project


Moda Hove is a new £260m build-to-rent community in East Sussex.


This is an intergenerational urban village on a 9-acre site which will provide 564 apartments for rent to suit all ages, lifestyles, and requirements.


Residents in the six apartment buildings will benefit from communal lounges, roof spaces and open terraces, private dining areas, cafes, shops, 24/7 gyms, and 50,000sqft of office and co-working space.


Construction on the site of a disused industrial park is now underway and scheduled for completion in 2024. The masterplan also includes 260 community care homes, as well as a public square, landscaped pathways, and extensive public realm and gardens.



The Furniture Solutions


Deanestor was awarded the £4m fitout contract for Sackville Road by Midgard – its second project for a Moda Living neighbourhood.


We are manufacturing and installing 572 bespoke kitchens for the studios and one, two and three-bed apartments and offices, and 916 fitted wardrobes, all to Moda’s high specification interior design.



Modern, High Specification Kitchens


Manufactured in the UK, the bespoke modern kitchens will be L- or U-shaped with some linear configurations. The base cabinets and 3-drawer units will have a dark grey horizontal woodgrain finish with wall cabinets in a lighter matt colour and contrasting white marbled quartz worktops and splashbacks.


The units have a handle-less design for a sleek and contemporary appearance, and there will be LED lighting under the wall cabinets. Some of the kitchens will have breakfast bars.


High quality integrated appliances include combi or dual fan oven, microwave, dishwasher, tall fridge freezer, extractor, four-ring induction hob, dishwasher, and washer/dryer fitted in a specially designed utility cabinet.


Bespoke Fitted Bedroom Furniture


The built-in floor-to-ceiling wardrobes will be manufactured in three sizes and two or three-door configurations with double hanging rails, full-height internal mirror, storage spaces, deep red back panel, and shelving. The doors will have a contemporary integrated handle design.



Other Moda Build-to-Rent Projects


Deanestor’s sister company Offsite Solutions is providing the bathroom pods for Moda Hove – which means that between both businesses, more than £8m of contracts for Sackville Road have been awarded.


Also underway is a £3m furniture and fitout contract for a new build-to rent neighbourhood for Moda in Glasgow. On this project, Deanestor is working with Robertson Group to provide the kitchens and fitted wardrobes for Moda Holland Park.


The projects in Glasgow and Hove bring the total number of kitchens being manufactured by Deanestor for Moda to over 1,000 and wardrobes to more than 1,500.
