We love doing HMOs (Homes of Multiple Occupancy) whether for Students or Professionals. They have great scope to bring some design flair in the ever increasingly competitive marketplace. However, we always begin with function before anything else. These properties need to be super tough to cope with the occupancy levels and the general tenant profile. The furniture needs to be robust to withstand the wear and tear. The communal spaces need to have enough space for all tenants to comfortably congregate and cook in. There are very specific guidelines and regulations that HMOs must meet in order to operate. All this is taken into account before adding any design flair. This is where the fun begins as this housing segment really calls for stand out design to beat the competition and attract long term tenants.
