With the changing tide of condo legislation in Colorado, more of our clients are exploring condos. One of the frequently asked questions we get is ‘what is the difference between condo and apartment design’. Below is a quick guide that lists the top things we review.
We have found that design for condos ultimately focuses on permanency, similar to the design of single family home; as opposed to apartment design which focuses more on temporary living. A temporary mindset (mine for now) in apartments versus a permanent mindset (mine long-term) in condos impacts many design aspects. In addition to this, the location of the community and the target demographic play a critical role in the overall design and features that should be included.
Which design aspects and differences between apartments and condos stand out the most to you? We would love to hear your thoughts!
