At NORR, our residential architecture portfolio spans decades and project types. We provide design, master planning and landscape architectural services to create sustainable multi-family communities across Canada, the US and UK. From urban centers to luxury residential apartment complexes, townhomes and rental housing, our residential experts work to design built environments with long-term value.
Designs For Life
Our design team applies market strategy, demographic research and competitive analysis to develop a holistic view of the project’s target market. We assess the lifestyle desires of the end user and the business goals of the client to create communities that will attract and retain residents for years to come. As the demand for rental housing increases for millennials and empty nesters, we respond to our clients’ changing marketplace with designs that feature multiple unit layouts, comprehensive amenity spaces, mixed-use elements and interconnections to the community that command top rental rates.
Fit With the Community
Our residential design portfolio includes both high density and low density projects. The lower density multi-family projects are designed with careful regard for the surrounding community. Because they’re often adjacent to single family homes or located in exclusive urban settings, attention to streetscape and landscape architecture is essential. We’re adept at designing spaces that include the elements that specifically increase marketability and long-term sustainability and value – no matter the project size, scope or density.
