About

We are a product design studio committed to reviving the spirit of the commons by connecting people to their urban environments.

Inspired by ‘the commons’ spirit – resources that are owned in common – we empower our clients to create places that facilitate shared experiences, whether on a rooftop garden or in a shared residential or work-space.

To achieve this, we have developed a range of specialised products that can be built by you.

Our products aim to create:

  • A place to meet
  • A place to grow
  • A place to play

Urban Commons is owned and directed by Justin Hutchinson and was originally co-founded with Shawn Ashkanasy and David Leone in 2011.
