Home layouts can also be optimized so animals can comfortably hang out with their human owners. Spring Creek Designs Smutko found that she and her husband were constantly needing to walk around their 60-pound German shepherd, Tess, in the kitchen. When the firm redesigned the room, she requested a larger aisle between the work island and sink. “We wanted Tess to be with us, but without being stepped on,” she says. She selected a hard quarter-sawn floor that would withstand Tesss claws. Technology and internet-enabled products can also help. Smart cameras and lights allow homeowners to keep tabs on pets and ensure theyre comfortable when alone in the house. New electronic collars can activate pet doors so that homes remain secure. Winter Park, Fla., architect, builder, and licensed interior designer Phil Kean incorporated that technology when he designed the New American Home in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders. He also used an artificial turf called K9Grass that is designed specifically for dogs and eliminates the challenge of muddy paws and dead spots on the lawn.
Early on, Mangas saw an opportunity to engage with the wider modern architecture community by featuring other professionals prominently in his listing marketing. He features the architects who designed his listings and makes sure to always display photo credits for photographers, whose work elegantly captures the beauty of modern architecture. “I try to support the whole team that helped put such a unique product on the market. And that helps support me in the long run.” Mangas also helps connect consumers with this professional community. Every year, he puts together a modern home tour, generally featuring contemporary homes that are not on the market. He invites the architect and others involved in the homes story to the events, which helps draw significant crowds. Though these tours cost $40 to $60 to attend, Mangas says hell get 300 to 500 visitors in a day.
