This community’s design has contemporary architecture that makes a bold statement and creative floor plan designs target a variety of home buyers. Vibrant color schemes have unique and contrasting accent colors to give individuality to the homes, and a single base color to bring continuity to the community. The tri-pack arrangement attaches the homes only at the garage walls, with no common living walls adjacent to a neighboring unit, creating the livability and feel of an single-family home.

Open plan interiors maximize the use of space, making smaller floor plans live larger.   The home’s main indoor living space was designed to connect to patios on the fronts of the homes to promote a more social and interactive community, while also providing direct access to private interior yard space.   All the homes have well-appointed kitchens with large islands and lots of storage.    Appropriately sized master suites have five-piece baths and walk-in closets.

From the Judges
This is a really good use of space from a site design level, with connectivity and density without being on top of one another. Judges commented, “This is such a cool solution.”
