Commonplace is disrupting the single family home. A radically reinvented way to design and construct a home with non-combustible, mold-resistant materials for reduced waste and environmental stewardship.

Thoughtful Design

Thoughtful Design

Architecturally refined, the Commonplace home is centred around an indoor-outdoor experience. Efficient planning paired with precision fabrication are the basis of each design. All variations feature expansive windows, thoughtful millwork, and sophisticated detailing prioritizing room proportions, natural light, axial views and extensive storage.

Innovative Construction

Innovative Construction

A Commonplace home is delivered in less time than conventional home construction, with fewer trades and nearly zero site waste. Commonplace homes are suited for construction in all communities and regions, especially remote areas with limited access to trades or in locations with wildfire or flood exposure.
