Dedicated to investing in cutting edge architecture for their affordable and social housing schemes, Origin Housing provide quality homes for first time buyers throughout Central and North London and Hertfordshire.

Originally set up to provide housing for London Transport personnel, they have over 90 years experience in the property industry. Today, schemes offered by Origin include shared ownership, rent-to-home-buy, intermediate rent and keyworker accommodation, as well as social housing and care services.


Working with acclaimed architects, such as Sir Terry Farrell, Squire and Partners and Stephen Marshall, enables the housing association to fulfil their vision of developing great homes, places where individuals are proud to live, resulting in building strong and secure communities. Customer service and community integration are high on Origin’s priority list, and they pride themselves on their responsive and caring staff, which includes a dedicated team of community workers.


In April 2010, the Origin Group, SPH Housing and Griffin Homes officially merged to become Origin Housing. The organisation now own and manage over 5500 properties, and are preparing to launch 9 new shared ownership and rent-to-home-buy sites over the next 18 months.
