6 innovative multifamily products

6 new products to help put the finishing touches on any multifamily project.

By MFDC Staff | August 29, 2018



The Cambridge Bypass Sliding Shower Door System from C.R. Laurence features a double-bypass configuration that allows for entry from the left or right side. Minimal hardware creates a modern aesthetic. Stainless steel rollers (inset) yield smooth door operation. The stainless steel design can be installed on full standing showers or onto bathtubs. Maximum door width: 37 inches; maximum door weight: 84 pounds.


2. ALL-IN-ONE WASHER-DRYER saves SPACE in smaller units

The Whirlpool Smart All-In-One Care Washer and Dryer allows a single laundry load to be completely washed and dried in the same machine. The ventless unit can fit under kitchen counters or in closets, laundry rooms, and bathrooms. Comes with Amazon Alexa and Apple Watch compatibility. The Whirlpool mobile app can provide alert notifications to the tenant’s smartphone.



Built on the site of the Apollo Theater in the District of Columbia, the Apollo Apartments complex has over 350 rentals, a Whole Foods, and a landscaped rooftop terrace. The project’s landscape designer, Landscape Architecture Bureau, specified Kebony modified wood for the terrace pergola for its low-maintenance properties and the natural silver patina it develops over time. Kebony wood was also used for the decking and benches throughout the project.



The one-story roof of the three-story Ridge Senior Living facility in Salt Lake City dominates the view from most resident’s windows. The project team—AJC Architects, Sahara Construction, and Capitol Roofing—decided to use the MBCI SuperLok 16-inch metal panel roofing system on the first-story roof for its clean aesthetic design and thermal and wind resistance. The mechanically field-seamed, vertical leg standing seam roof system provides exceptional resistance to wind uplift and the option to add insulation to the existing roof.



The new DuraSquare collection from Duravit features ceramics and a fresh take on furniture. The collection’s washbasin has walls that are only 3/16-inch thick thanks to its DuraCeram construction. Complementing the washbasins is the DuraSquare vanity. The console frame is height-adjustable and available in silver (chrome) or matte black. The furniture frame includes a glass shelf (available in six colors) and a towel rack. Bathtubs round out the collection and mimic the shape of the washbasins.



The YesterTec Stealth Kitchen System hides complete kitchens in built-in modules to create a minimalist look or maximize the efficiency of a small space. The modules look like built-in cabinetry and come in a variety of finish options. The stealth kitchens are suited for apartments, game rooms, and entertainment areas. The modules can be configured into an L-shape or galley kitchen, as a straight line, or with a peninsula. Units are 29 inches deep.
