United Dwelling Construction

Before co-founding Modative, Christian Návar with his business partner, Derek Leavitt, in 2006, Christian worked for a contractor, furniture designer, and in 2009, Modative ventured beyond its architectural practice by forming a construction company, Modative Build. In 2014, they started their third company, Modative Development, enabling them to act as their own client on future projects.

In 2017, Modative continued their pursuit of solving the housing crisis in Los Angeles by exploring Accessory Dwelling Units as a means to increase residential density in a responsible and meaningful way. In 2019, Modative started a collaboration with United Dwelling, an ambitious ADU company that was created to convert underutilized backyards into attractive housing opportunities.
