Abimara is a design-led property development company that believes in a bespoke approach to every project.

Working closely with likeminded experts, we ensure that our properties enhance the environment in which they sit, are perfectly suited to their use and are finished to a quality we have become renowned for.

Abimara was originally established as a building contractor by William Knight in 1974. Known for our sensitivity and appreciation for design, combined with our quality of build, we grew largely by way of personal recommendation.

In more recent years’ focus has shifted away from contracting on behalf of private clients towards development. As developer we have delivered a wide variety of projects from new build schemes on constrained urban sites, to the conversion of office buildings into beautiful homes.

Daniel Knight and Matt Whale, who, after becoming close friends at university in 2003, joined the company in 2006 and 2013 respectively. Dan and Matt now handle the day-to-day operation of Abimara and have delivered, or are responsible for, projects with a combined value of more than £50m.

In addition to our development business, we own and manage a unique lettings portfolio comprising of high quality, architect designed commercial spaces.
