In this video Martin Rahn, Director of Development at Rize Alliance Properties explains the RizeModular, an innovative RizeLab piece, incorporated into the design of The Independent homes.

RizeModular was born from a RizeLab brainstorming session with False Creek Design Group when we were exploring solutions for livability challenges; finding the balance between maximizing liveable space vs. closets/ storage within a suite. From this brainstorm the idea of creating a flexible wall storage system that expands the functionality of the user’s living space became the RizeModular.

RizeLab is a collaborative think tank where ideas spark questions, and questions set the framework for innovative living solutions. We experiment with design, materials, and the concepts of space and livability. Our aim is to push our teams and projects outside of conventional thinking and into the creative horizons that make what we do better, one solution at a time.
