Combining Style and Comfort for the Perfect Outdoor Space: Case Study

Background

Homecrest recently got to collaborate with Greystar Properties on an exciting project to rejuvenate the outdoor common areas at the LPM apartments. The LPM development, luxury apartments managed by Greystar Properties, is located in the beautiful Loring Park neighborhood in Minneapolis. Here, residents have easy access to all that the park has to offer. With multiple outdoor seating and activity areas, it’s clear this community values being close to Minnesotan nature. LPM’s proximity to trendy restaurants and shops makes it easy for residents to explore nearby neighborhoods, as well.

A Fresh Start

The goal of the redesign for the LPM apartments was to create outdoor spaces that felt comfortable, yet stylish. Greystar needed furniture that could match that atmosphere and epitomize the qualities they were seeking. Additionally, their selections had to be capable of withstanding the unpredictable Minnesota weather. Greystar’s architectural agency, Kaas Wilson Architects, came to them with a design that incorporated Homecrest furniture specifically in their plans for the new outdoor areas. Homecrest furniture was a natural choice for this project because of its durable, chic and cozy designs. All these qualities and more made our products fit into the luxury development seamlessly.

Introducing the Collections

Homecrest’s Grace seating collection was used in this project to bring comfort and sophistication to LPM’s outdoor lounge areas. Featuring a 10-inch UltraCore seat cushion, Grace is a versatile collection that works just as well for post-dinner party cocktails as it does for catnaps on a Sunday afternoon. The flexibility of the Grace collection made it a perfect choice for a space that will be shared by a variety of tenants.

For tables, Homecrest provided the Mode collection. These tables feature floating aluminum rectangular panels that bring elegance to any space. From side tables to group-dining tables, the Mode collection can be customized to a variety of sizes. Because of the versatility of LPM’s outdoor spaces, Mode’s contemporary look but practical nature was a perfect selection.

Wrapping Up

Though the project isn’t quite completed yet, Greystar has expressed their satisfaction with multiple aspects of working with Homecrest, including our:

  • Product Design
  • Wide Portfolio
  • Products Made in the USA
  • Customer Service

Recently, two representatives from Homecrest took time to visit the development in order to address concerns on-site. By doing this, we were not only able to provide excellent customer service, but we also gained valuable feedback as to how we can improve our products and processes for future projects. We were honored to collaborate with Greystar on this exciting renovation, and can’t wait to help them with future projects!
