Urban Elegance Collective: Transformative Tales of Our Multi-Family Design Journey

One of our favorite commercial projects this past year involved the conceptualization and execution of a multi-family community space and leasing office for some repeat clients. Our design team orchestrated a highly functional layout and oversaw all aspects from spatial arrangement to the curation of furnishings and finishes. Keep reading for all of the details on this project from conception to completion!


Where It All Begins


Upon initial consultation, our client discussed their objectives with us. It was evident that they wanted a large clubhouse space with a kitchenette, alongside an appropriately sized leasing office with a small waiting area. Since our client already had the finalized building layout, we were able to take those blueprints and our design team was able to input them into our design software! Thus, beginning the space planning process!


Getting the Most out of Your Space


Space planning is one of the most important parts of the schematic phase of design.  By experimenting with diverse furniture configurations, we were able to discover all of the possible furniture arrangements and unlock the full potential of the space. We were able to see directly on paper how each arrangement interacts with the other and also study the potential flow of traffic through the space. Space planning not only helps us come up with furniture placement, but it also allows us to think about where lighting will go, if additional outlets are needed, or even where we should include different finish accents.



Curating the Design


With the finalization of the furniture floor plan, our design team began making furniture and finish selections, meticulously handpicking furniture pieces, artwork, and finishes. Embracing a neutral foundation, we infused vivacity through the use of a captivating accent hue, “Smokey Blue” by Sherwin Williams. Complementing this palette, we used a stunning accent wallpaper infused with warm tones, harmonizing the design composition. To pull the entire design together we curated artwork and accessories that echoed both of these hues, ensuring a harmonious design. When it came to the furniture, we selected pieces that would hold up over time. We love it when our furniture vendors have offerings that are not only beautiful and comfortable, but also have the performance aspect that so many of our clients are looking for!





Upon client approval, our procurement manager spearheaded the acquisition process, meticulously tracking order progress until the property was primed for installation. On installation day, our skilled team orchestrated a seamless transformation, bringing the designs we had created on paper to life. It is so fun to see a room transform with furnishings and accessories! Our team made sure everything was perfect. During each installation, we go through a checklist to make sure we haven’t missed any small detail. These tasks include pillow fluffing, window treatment steaming, accessory cleaning, and tag removal.



As we reflect on the journey of bringing the multi-family community space and leasing office project from vision to reality, we are reminded of the profound impact that thoughtful and strategic design can have on a space. It’s not just about aesthetics; it’s about creating environments that resonate with the people who use them, enhancing their day-to-day experiences.


We are immensely proud of this project, not only for its design excellence but also for the meaningful connections it has allowed us to forge with our clients. It’s a vivid demonstration of what can be achieved when creativity meets commitment.
