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.
