DSA’s core business was built on residential design. From the inception of the company, our focus has been on creating unique spaces for people to call home, and this philosophy informs all of our multifamily projects. We understand the impact design has on people’s lives when living in dense accommodations, and we strive to create welcoming communities, from shared amenities to the private spaces within those communities. Our Mutli-Family projects include villas, townhomes, apartments, condominiums, assisted living facilities, student housing, and various other housing project types.
Student housing projects can be some of the most exciting, yet complex residential project types to undertake. Whether on or off campus, they require a specific set of expertise to be successful. These projects vary widely in size, building type, and configuration. They must be inviting, safe, and must foster a sense of community and interaction that students can appreciate. Our student housing projects have incorporated many of the most desired elements of modern student life. Whether a publicly funded project, or a private development, we understand the various stresses and demands placed on these specific projects. This can be a result of restrictions set by academic calendars, revenue generated per bed, or working on or near occupied campuses. Our team is well versed in this complex planning process.
Townhomes are one of DSA’s specialty project types. Since the beginning of the company DSA has worked with many different developers to design attractive, functional, and repeatable designs that fit all income ranges and tastes. The ‘townhome’ or ‘townhouse’ building type comes in many forms, shapes and sizes, but typically includes buildings with multiple attached units with two or more levels. As this product type has gained popularity in recent years, we have designed hundreds of units for developers and gained extremely valuable information on the best practices in multi-unit design. Every design we produce is unique to the client and determined by the needs of the development, so we do not keep plans on file for sale. We create one-of-a-kind, site responsive, sustainable residential multifamily product that is competitive in the real-estate market. Let us help you create your next development.
It is extremely competitive in today’s rental housing market. Whether designing new or remodeling existing apartment buildings, staying current on the latest trends in multi-unit residential is critical in staying competitive. Tenants are seeking convenience, flexibility, better unit layouts, and amenities that enhance their lifestyle and improve their quality of life. We look at every apartment project from both the perspective of the developer as well as the user, understanding that the ultimate goal of the project is to attract potential tenants and keep them there as long as possible. Happy tenants are willing to stay longer, pay more, and take pride in their residences, which ultimately makes the project a success. Design Styles Architecture has the capability to help you with your next apartment design including garden, podium, wrap, as well as low, mid, and high-rise project types.
