Live/work buildings are single-family dwellings that contain workplaces on the ground floor. They are ideal for both urban infill and suburban retrofit areas. Live/works provide a transition between commercial centers and single-family homes. Of ten live/works offer their owner the option of having just one mortgage for both their home and workplace. “Creative class” professionals like architects, graphic designers, technology designers, and artists are attracted to the reduced commute time and greater integration of home life and work.
