Apartment Living
Pivoting Priorities

We approach housing design as urban placemaking, with environmentally and culturally relevant solutions that meet residents' needs for comfort, security, versatility, and connectedness. In other words, everything that matters—especially now, as the world around us changes.

We set out to understand how living in an apartment through the pandemic is changing people's priorities. What types of apartments do we live in? How could they serve us better? How have our lives changed? What do we need most nowadays, and what can we live without?
