The home has become the hub of life, and because of that, it has so many more functions with sometimes multiple generations living under one roof.

Well, now there is a new homeowner experience designed to fit this need. Next Gen home designs by Lennar, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, provides the ideal living solution for multiple generations living under one roof and we’re excited because these homes are making their Indianapolis debut!

Laura Givens, marketing supervisor for Lennar Indianapolis, joined us today with everything you need to know about Next Gen.

Next Gen is a transformative home design offering a home within a home. Lennar introduced Next Gen home designs in October 2011 (in Arizona). The concept quickly took hold across the country.

The inspiration for Next Gen started with identifying a need. We identified the need for a physical construct for multiple generations living under one roof.

Many adult children choose to keep their elderly parents close-by, for a variety of reasons. At the same time, we have young adult children in a period of transition needing support.  

Next Gen homes provide a completely separate suite with their own entrances – some with their own garages.

Originally conceived as a traditional in-law suite (separate living quarters with living area, bedroom, full bath, kitchenette. Separate entrance for privacy, but still connected to the main home).

The thoughtful design details incorporated into our Next Gen suites help extended family members maintain an important aspect of a happy life – independence in their home with the companionship of loved ones nearby.

The Next Gen suite offers the ability to evolve and adapt to meet ever changing family dynamics.  

Since COVID-19, the home has become the hub of life. Homebuyers need the home to do more. It needs to function as a home office, home gym and home classroom. Next Gen provides the ideal space for these needs. Connected yet with a sense of separation.

The Next Gen suite also provides the ideal living situation for an adult child with special needs. Next Gen suite provides a solution where parents can be close to their adult child who has special needs and help take care of them while giving them a better quality of life – their own privacy and a sense of independence. 

Next Gen® will be offered in both ranch and two-story floor-plans in communities across the Indianapolis market.
