HOMMA is a group of home builders, architects, designers and developers. We design "home" — the universal sense of comfort, security and belonging. Our solutions make homes more accessible, more efficient and more in tune with their inhabitants.
We exist to advance modern life & style
Our understanding of the psychology of human happiness and well-being has come a long way in recent years. It’s more about meaning than things — the specifics are a bit different for everyone. Yet little has changed to incorporate what we now know about ourselves in how we design and build our homes. We’re changing that.
At the same time, the housing system — from zoning laws to mortgages — hasn’t kept pace with the ongoing rush of urbanization. Demand for high-quality homes far outstrips supply in many areas. We don’t think anyone should have to spend every-weekend-of-their-life-for-two-years looking for a home. So, we’re working on changing that too.
WE BELIEVE A LITTLE SHOULD GO A LONG WAY.
At HOMMA, we see the opportunity to combine technological and architectural innovations to optimize our use of increasingly limited resources in the home — from construction materials to water to our time and attention.
A form of planes and angles. A system of people, objects and tasks. A place where we recharge, grow and create. We see room for innovation.We’re designing solutions to make homes more accessible, more efficient and more in tune with their inhabitants. All to deliver a better sense of home.
We’ve begun by transforming a house in the Bay Area into our lab and workplace.
The current structure of the home is overburdened, from materials use to building codes to figuring out how and when work was done. We’re designing homes to design away the burden, creating living spaces that are more in balance with modern lives.
By drawing inspiration from the world around us, we innovate to optimize; believing a little should go a long way. Our office is designed as a home, ensuring we create with comfort and intention in mind.
Network devices for the home — like cameras, door bells, outlets and thermostats — are readily available and economical. So too are connected sensors that can be applied to monitor and manage the many aspects of our home’s health. We’re threading these technologies together in new ways — to improve efficiency, provide greater peace of mind and eliminate tasks that take time away from focusing on what matters.
The HOMMA team is made up of accomplished architects, technologists, psychologists and committed tinkerers. Our instinct drives us and our community guides us. We challenge current processes to innovate and optimize.
We are based in San Francisco's Bay Area, but our sensibilities and ambitions are global.
We work closely with developers, contractors, city planners, and design thinkers. We partner with those who share our values — those who refuse to conform, approach problems with an open mind, and strengthen us with their insight and expertise.
