Integrated retirement community start-up Wallacea Living has appointed Sue Timney as creative director, following her involvement as a creative consultant on the company’s first development in central London.

Timney will spearhead the creative strategy and interior design of Wallacea Living’s residential and amenity spaces. With more than 40 years’ industry experience, she has been involved in the design for all the amenity spaces at Wallacea Living’s first site, including the restaurant, the cinema, the bar, the library and the multifunctional space, working with architectural and interior design firm Jestico + Whiles.

Timney said: “My vision extends far beyond conventional interior design. I personally understand and appreciate that we’re not simply creating another living space; we’re crafting an entirely new lifestyle and I intend to further infuse a sense of independence and luxury into the living experience here. I want to introduce exciting new design elements and activities that will enhance the overall ambiance and elevate the residents’ daily lives,  including curating spaces that foster a strong sense of community.”

Timney has been chair of the Chelsea Arts Club, chair of Trevelyan Arts Trust and president of the British Institute of Interior Design. She launched brands Timney Fowler and Sue_Timney, and is a visiting professor and honorary fellow of the Royal College of Art.

Paul Morgan, co-founder and chief executive of Wallacea Living commented: “Sue Timney’s appointment as creative director underscores the pivotal significance of this role within Wallacea Living’s core philosophy. At the heart of our ethos lies the commitment to creating unparalleled living spaces that embody luxury, culture, and design – environments that not only inspire but also enhance the quality of everyday life. Our residents seek not just the allure of thoughtfully curated aesthetics, but also the practicality that enriches their lives daily. Sue’s wealth of experience and passion for, transforming living spaces will undoubtedly play a crucial role in recognising that.”
