After launching the first residence concept in Brooklyn, NY in 2018, Guesthouse has grown into a boutique collection of artfully designed and curated residences inspired by the originality of the communities and scenes that surround us. Each residence is designed to feel minimal yet functional, familiar, and welcoming — like a home that was created with you in mind.
