Commercial Influence on Residential Architecture

Co-creation is increasingly becoming more common and residential clients are requesting design elements they’ve discovered in commercial environments be incorporated into their home designs. 

We’re not talking just great rooms with cathedral ceilings. It’s everything from the commercial furnishings, fixtures, materials and even the lighting are all chosen to replicate luxe commercial environments.

The result, now the most modern of home offices resemble corporate style office spaces, the master baths are befitting those of five-star resort spas and the home kitchens are reminiscent of upscale restaurants. The trend can even be seen in the home’s landscaping as outdoor areas are mimicking courtyard plazas traditionally experienced in commercial common areas.

The desire for commercial materials in residential settings is so high in fact that the Wynn hotel chain in Las Vegas has a thriving home furnishings store within the hotel.
