PEER Homes is committed to “placemaking”–deliberately designing public spaces where friends and families gather, social and economic exchanges occur, and cultures mix. The Project for Public Spaces has found that the best spots have activities, are accessible, are comfortable, and are sociable. They are the kinds of places that locals might bring visitors from out of town.
Each of PEER Homes residential housing projects incorporates ideas from the practice of placemaking. We believe that home is more than a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. Home is the community in which we live. Home is a place. PEER Homes creates places that make us all feel at home.
