Innovative Community Centers at the Orange County Great Park include Indoor/outdoor rooms include a coffee house, art centers, greenhouse, co-working zones, chef’s kitchens, rooftop terraces, outdoor rooms and plazas. RDC is providing interior design and FF&E Procurement services for the stylish and imaginative community centers at the Orange County Great Park masterplanned community. RDC is working with FivePoint on several of the planned community parks within the 10 neighborhoods that are emerging at the 1,300-acre Great Park, one of the largest urban masterplans in the U.S.

At Novel Park, RDC designed the interiors and provided procurement services, including custom pieces and unique finds such as the vintage motorcycle that is showcased in the common area known as the Garage. Novel Park’s community center sets the stage for serendipitous encounters in a community attractive to millennials. In this neighborhood of townhomes are three community spaces: a coffee house (named Cup), the Grand Home, and The Garage. These places expand residents’ living space and encourage social interaction.

The Grand Home is the primary community building, with several gathering spaces. A chef’s kitchen accommodates large parties, spilling out into a large, light-filled living room with soaring two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows. The windows frame a mature ficus heritage tree and the neighborhood beyond. The windows allow contemporary-style pendant chandeliers to become beacons of light in the evenings.
