Beyond traditional real estate services, at crisp, we work together with architects, master planners and real estate professionals, to create creating places and communities that are used, enjoyed and functional. Places were people come together, where quality of work, life and social interaction is improved.

This can, in particular be done through “Third Places”, which are the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home (first place) and the workplace (second place). These places act as anchors for community life and facilitate and foster broader and more creative interaction. The third place is where you relax in public, where you encounter familiar faces and make new acquaintances.

Third places can include a wide array of places, from community centres, shops, public gardens, gyms, F&B outlets, etc – any places where people feel home away from home. 

Increasing traffic to a shop or showroom

We can do this by creating more proximity with your potential customers, by setting up a third place, that will make them feel like guests and encourage them to take part in activities that ultimately lead to increased business for you. 

CreatING a better work environment by providing third places within the office

Thereby we improve not only staff wellbeing and relaxation, but also contribute to our client’s businesses by encouraging people getting together and sharing ideas in creative ways. 

This also has a positive effect on staff health and morale. 

Increasing social interaction in residential communities

Nowadays, in many urban cities, people become more individualistic not only because of general development tendencies, but also because interaction is not promoted and the right environment for interaction not fostered.


Indeed, people living in high rise apartments or gated communities, have few places where they actively meet their neighbours that encourage creative interactions. Yet these are essential for community health, wellbeing, social cohesion and even reducing social tensions. 


At crisp we are passionate about creating these places, that will be specially thought of to ensure they achieve these objectives.
