- Macro House – 4 Students per property
We’ve learned the best way to make new friends is to live with them. But it’s nearly impossible to find a house for all your friends (and your potential friends) to live. That’s where Macro House comes in. We convert large buildings into communal homes with private bedrooms, open and contemporary kitchens, spacious living and working spaces, movie rooms and other common amenities to foster connection and interaction with housemates. We call them Macro Houses, where we create a unique space that is geared towards social living. After we design and construct the ideal house, we fill it with like minded housemates who want to meet new people and form meaningful friendships.
PLEASE NOTE: This apartment living is very different from traditional apartment living – Individuals can rent beds in dorm-style rooms and live communally- sharing bathrooms, kitchens, living spaces, with the other residents of the house.
