Why Pacific Communities Builder

Where Quality and Value are Built-In

Smart By Design<sup>SM</sup> Space Planning

Smart By DesignSM Space Planning

Smart By DesignSM is an operating philosophy developed by Pacific Communities that translates into extraordinary benefits for its home owners, providing homes with more usable square footage than our competitors’ homes containing the same square footage. The result is more house, more living space, and more standard features for the home buyer.

Pacific Communities’ designers and architects view the home from the owner’s perspective. For example, secondary bedrooms in a Pacific Communities’ home are larger than in the typical new home. This is accomplished by making the hallways shorter and incorporating the space savings into the bedrooms. An elegantly simple solution – that’s Smart By DesignSM.

This intelligent approach to home design is also reflected in the floor plans. Kitchens are situated to conveniently serve dining rooms for formal entertaining or family rooms for more casual gatherings. Bedrooms are thoughtfully secluded away from busy living areas. Rooms flow in a natural progression from one to the next in a way that suggests that someone thought about what it would be like to live in this home – this too is Smart By DesignSM.

Pacific Communities’ Smart By DesignSM concept is based upon important lessons learned from years of home building experience. New home buyers become new home owners when given the opportunity to purchase intelligently designed, quality built homes. Or, to put it simply, smart families buy Smart By DesignSM homes.

We strive to meet the needs of our homebuyers at every stage of life, including first, move-up, move-down, and multigen homes.

SmartGenSM Floor Plans and Master-Planned Communities
While multigen living is not a new idea, SmartGenSM is our version to a home re-imagined. Pacific Communities’ SmartGenSM homes and communities are made for the modern family, fostering togetherness and meaningful relationships across all generations and enriching the everyday living experience. Visit our different communities to experience a variety of intergenerational lifestyle options – from private suites and separate entrances within a home to a multigenerational housing mix within a master-planned community.

The need for multigenerational housing is apparent due to key demographic shifts as a result of factors including cultural or ethnic influences, mobility of young adults, a maturing Baby Boomer population, and housing affordability. Statistics have shown that that this trend is continuing to grow – ” A record 57 million Americans, or 18.1% of the population of the United States, lived in multigenerational family households in 2012, double the number who lived in such households in 1980 (Fry and Passel, 2014).”

To compliment Pacific Communities’ time-tested Smart By DesignSM space planning philosophy, our thoughtful approach to designing each home has encouraged us to think even bigger. The movement toward achieving livable and sustainable neighborhoods through a more inclusive design has spurred the development of our SmartGenSM Lifestyle Communities and Plan offerings.
