When does a house become a home? Is it that long-awaited moment when new homeowners cross their threshold for the first time, or when the first nail is tapped into the wall to hang a piece of art? Or perhaps it’s when the first memory is made — when friends and family gather around the kitchen table to share a meal.
For us at Empire Communities, a house becomes a home when it reflects the life that happens within its walls.
Join us for our second season of Love Design, Live Empire, and go behind the scenes with principal Dominic De Freitas of figure3 as we work to create four distinct model homes that bring our vision of home to life.
Episode Three: Adding Personal Touches to a New Home
From bold finishes to decorative accents and everything else in between, a remarkably staged home is what allows prospective buyers to truly envision themselves living somewhere new. See Empire's Industrial Ranch model come to life in episode three, and hear what Dominic has to say about the complexities of putting a model home together with the buyer in mind.
As a newly named principal of renowned design firm figure3, Dominic De Freitas is taking the design world by storm. Having joined the figure3 team more than five years ago, Dominic has proven his tenacity and flexed his creative muscle for a myriad of high-profile projects and clients.
After recently completing four distinct model homes at our Legacy community in Thorold along with his award-winning team, we asked the distinguished designer to share his vision for bringing Empire’s model homes to life.
