Urbanovo comes from the hybrid of two words, urban + novo. Novo is the latin translation of - "to make anew, refresh, revive"
We are a development, design and construction company focusing on bringing life back to distressed properties and foreclosed homes through green or energy efficient remodels, resulting in homes that not only have appeal aesthetically with modern design and style but are also easier and affordable to maintain and use.
We are based in Phoenix, AZ. In a market where the house flip is solely based on turning profit, we are creating a new model for home construction and remodel; one that privileges energy performance and efficiency using sustainable design strategies and materials.
At the same time, we are pushing the idea of urban renewal and densification, and believe that by rehabilitating distressed homes in neighborhoods, it can have a domino effect of influencing the rest of the neighborhood in creating motivation for refreshing other homes, revitalizing the neighborhood, and increasing home values. Also, a crucial piece of sustainable living is a connection to shared public space and transportation, and we look for opportunities for homes located near these types of conditions. We are intending that this larger scale Urban-mindedness is a part of our image, combined with the smaller scale of the single residence.
