Our unique mission is born out of what we believe… It begins with our belief that the spaces in which we live, work, rest, and celebrate have a powerful effect on us – that we are not immune to our surroundings. It continues out of our belief that how we design, build, and utilize those spaces should not be a trivial afterthought – that it is one of life’s greatest joys. From the beginning of time, humankind has been intricately connected to their environs; making them personal, making them special, making them inspiring. Our mission is to do just that … we create space for life.
Every company has a story, and we are no exception. We started out with the humble beginnings of simply working to restore a number of local rental dwellings around Manhattan, KS. In doing so, we fell in love with the process of creating transformation, both to the structures on which we worked and in the neighborhoods in which they were located. We also began to feel compelled about developing a business model that not only served our clients but our community as well. Accordingly, we expanded our staff as we found hearts and skills which resonated with our goal – always believing from the beginning that who we are is more important than what we do.
As time passed, our band of talented and dedicated individuals continued to grow. We birthed new services and capabilities – born out of the very hearts and talents of these special individuals. Today we are an artisan development firm, focused on designing, crafting, and operating uncommon spaces within the residential rental and hospitality space sectors. We haven’t forgotten from where we came, and are more compelled today than ever by the vision of serving not only our clients, guests, and residents – but also our regional community. Each of us at Capstone3D is motivated by pouring our hearts and souls into creating uncommon spaces that ultimately lead to special experiences in those spaces.
We are often asked about the “3D” portion of our name, and what it means. We prefer to think of what it symbolizes; a reminder of who we are and what we strive to offer. The abbreviation “3D” is most commonly associated with the term “three dimensional”. We are literally three dimensional in the work we create, and metaphorically in the processes we employ. Most of all we are three dimensional in our approach; we thrive on challenges, are motivated by innovative solutions, are inspired by creative thinking, and are as interested in people as we are projects.
The symbol 3D also communicates something intangible… a sense of dynamic, inspired energy at work. Ironically, the field of real estate development is too often filled with projects that feel flat, stale, and hollow. By the inclusion of 3D in our name, Capstone3D means to remind ourselves – as much as our clients – how important it is to be more.
