Vibrant Node

If an apartment building’s amenity spaces are an afterthought during the design process, they’re going to feel like afterthoughts in someone’s life, too. As architects, we want to make a place where memories can be created, an innovative communal space setting will enhance the living experience of the residents and help them form bonds. The energy of a building filled with residents that are happy and excited to meet people is unique and unmistakable. It is something that can be encouraged with design. In an attempt to achieve this, we have created an urbanscape that has a contrasting architectural language.
