The public relations blurb on their website promises all sorts:
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project: the PegasusLife 'vision' >>> >>> "We strive to make all our projects unique, relevant and inspiring"

Park House, Harpenden, Hertfordshire - PegasusLife
It looks remarkably similar to the 'unique, relevant and inspiring' buildings being proposed at Knowle:

EDDC will not cite loss of light at Knowle planning appeal - Latest Sidmouth and Ottery News - Sidmouth Herald

Sidmouth, Devon - PegasusLife
Another likeness is that PegasusLife appealed with the Harpenden application:
Developer likely to appeal over rejection of Harpenden retirement home plan - St Albans and Harpenden News - Herts Advertiser
But what is clear is that there is not much very good building going on:
