Model Homes through History

Homeownership has long been a key part of the American Dream and, as such, is integral to our identity as Americans.  With this consideration, what do our homes say about us as individuals and as a society?  Similar to how a historian can study the design of a home...

McMansionization of America

Over the last few decades there has been one home that has stood out as a model home, of sorts – the McMansion.  First appearing in the 1980s, the term “McMansion” has evolved over the years to generally refer to a new home which feels too large for its property and...

The Concept

The coNEXT Home is a fully-connected, right-sized residence that embraces the promise of technology while helping to balance its role in our personal lives.  Its design is a response to today’s evolving reality where blurred lines exist between our worklife and our homelife, and where connecting with our mobile devices often overrules connecting with our loved ones.

The Proposal

To partner with forward-thinking individuals who share our ambition to develop and craft a one-of-a-kind home in the DC Metro area that showcases what the American home can become in this new digital age.

Illustrating our firm’s commitment, we propose to offer our design and administrative services, required to make this project a reality, pro bono to the investor, developer, or homeowner that proves to be the right fit.  In exchange, and to insure the achievement of our core goal, we’ll retain design oversight and a long-term promotional partnership throughout the lifecycle of the project.
