Creating Clever Space since 2004

For over a decade, we’ve been creating high quality, stylish contemporary places for students and professionals to live in Bristol and beyond. Passionate about property and obsessed with getting the details right, we develop well-designed homes that are great to live in and stand the test of time.

Our approach ensures we make the most of every available space – combining high quality architecture with innovative ‘clever spaces’ which really work for people.

At the same time, we try to minimise our impact on the environment and invest in eco-features from high quality low energy appliances to solar panels, air-source heat pumps and triple-glazing.

We own and manage an expanding portfolio of boutique properties in Bristol and our growing band of happy customers are testament to the high standards we set ourselves at Urban Creation.


Urban Creation Management

We want everyone who stays with us to have a great experience and that extends to the way we manage our properties too – our fair and transparent approach means you can get the best out of city living.

We inspect every building on a daily basis to make sure the communal areas are clean and in order and our relaxed, friendly and professional team are on hand to help with queries. We know our buildings inside out so if there’s an occasional glitch, we know exactly how to sort it out.

“Wow, thank you. I must say, I have never found a more capable landlord/lady in my history of living in England. I will be sure to spread good word.”  Jody Sloan, former tenant

Jonathan has been at the helm at Urban Creation for over a decade, during which the company has created over 1100 apartments across Bristol and the south of England. Having studied at Bristol University, he returned to live in the city in 2002 after a period of working in London and abroad. Ever since, he has focused on breathing new life into period and historic properties, as well as creating well-designed new buildings. Very much a hands-on director, Jonathan loves the challenge of finding and transforming properties. He also likes to make the most of what Bristol has to offer so when not at work, he can often be found on bike rides, at the theatre or just ‘messing about with the kids’.


Maria is our financial controller and is the best person to talk to if you have any queries about bills and payments. Bristol-based, she joined us in May, bringing with her a wealth of experience in the property and leisure sectors, which will prove invaluable as our portfolio expands. In her spare time, her varied interests include sports – skiing, tennis and running – travelling, or just relaxing with a good book.


Having worked in the serviced apartments and hotels industry for around eight years, Zee is a real font of knowledge when it comes to this sector. She takes care of the bookings for Beech House, Urban Creation’s boutique serviced apartments. Zee is also a trained make-up artist and loves to embrace her creativity in her spare time by doing the make-up of her friends and family for special occasions such as weddings.


Sino is our Student Accommodation Manager and is the go-to person if you are coming to study in Bristol and looking for a home from home. She ensures everything is running smoothly helping you to find the perfect pad and ensuring any issues are resolved during your tenancy. Sino speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin as well as English and when not working can be found cooking up a storm and perfecting her bakes.
