Kind Places: Designing Multifamily Spaces That Residents Actually Use

April 27, 2021

We’re so excited to share our latest design guide, which captures our design ethos. We know that creating and designing for long-term residents is what drives renewals — the ultimate creation of value for multifamily communities. For Class-A projects, it’s no longer enough to just prioritize leases getting signed. 

Owners, developers, operators, and partners put so much effort into the amenity spaces of residential communities — but too often amenity spaces languish, gathering dust and adding to overhead rather than providing value for residents and operators. Never forget that active spaces are a powerful leasing tool.

We believe in making spaces that people are drawn to, that are comfortable, and that even non-residents can get excited about. We design with the mindset of a resident: how they think of space, how they use space, and what they need in 2021 and going forward.

In the following guide, we summarize how we think about amenity spaces and designers, how to create spaces that residents actually use (and thus, create long-term value), and considerations for the future of residential multifamily living.
