A truly great living experience is made in the details. Excellent design is how we create beautiful homes at an exceptional value.
We are architects, designers, procurement specialists, and construction managers. Each member of the team carefully considers every last element of our homes.
Our methodology is to design for community and convenience, in tandem with happiness and comfort. In our homes, that translates to sunny living rooms, chic furnishings, and shared spaces you want to be in, ready-made for your move.
We take care of everything, so you have more time to spend on better things.
Crafting the ideal shared living experience has many components. Our design team works closely at every stage of the process, from real estate acquisition to receiving feedback from member experiences, to learn and optimize our designs at every turn.
These feedback loops provide us with the expert insights needed to design homes that work as well on your Instagram as they do in your day-to-day.
Every home is unique in its potential, location, and neighborhood. Ground-up construction gives us tremendous opportunities to design our ideal layouts, while adaptive reuse allows us to celebrate original design details, exposing brick, refinishing staircases, and polishing tile to pay homage to the building’s history.
We take a bespoke approach to every home. Our chosen layouts and details respond to each unique space, without ever sacrificing the comforts of home for our members.
Minding the details of shared living, we pay close attention to the way members interact with their space and with each other. We design with heart and sensitivity, focusing intently on creating homes that work well, and spaces that facilitate friendly interactions.
Coliving isn’t just another lifestyle trend, it’s the common sense way to live in a city. Thoughtfully designed shared layouts make our members happier, and encourage them to see their space as more than just a crash pad, but rather, a true home.
There’s a Know Your Neighbor effect in Common homes that stems from our considered approach to design. Our buildings value friendliness over anonymity, and that’s reflected in our every beam, window, and finish.
From clean lines to matte finishes, our hardware and fixtures are purposefully selected for their longevity, to create spaces that feel timeless and chic, but never flashy.
Art elevates every one of our homes, providing the perfect finishing touch to our furnished living rooms. We seek out interesting and beautiful work for shared spaces, and leave art hooks on the walls in each bedroom, because we know art is personal to its beholder.
