Meridith Baer Home Furnished ARCspace – Modular Living in Downtown Los Angeles
At Meridith Baer Home, we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community.
Los Angeles has a homelessness crisis, and in the past, it’s been our honor and pleasure donating furnishings to shelters and transitional residences.
Recently, we had the opportunity to contribute to a new, exciting, and innovative solution to the problem: the ARCspace modular home project downtown!
Often made from repurposed shipping containers, modular homes provide easily constructed, affordable housing for communities in need. ARCspace is a four-unit complex located in the Arts District, all assembled on-site in just two days.
Industrial and minimalist from the outside, we wanted ARCspace’s interiors to surprise visitors with their luxuriousness. To that end, we layered each home with chic furniture, rugs, art, and accessories until it looked lush and inviting.
With utility as important as style in these spaces, our staging, as described by Meridith, featured “multifunctional, contemporary pieces that maintain the open feeling of the space, while being easy to use and move around.”
As part of our donation, we also partnered with the Sustainable Building Council in a furniture challenge, donating multiple truckloads of gently used inventory to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore thrift shop.
Los Angeles has a homelessness crisis, and sometimes it feels like the problem is too large and the efforts too few. So when we learned about ARCspace, we jumped at the chance to donate our staging services.
