Horizontal Lock Up

Welcome! The Darien Community Association is proud to present The 203 Project!

We invited local designers, sponsors and special partners to take the DCA from house to home by giving interior and exterior spaces a “glow up” and opening its doors to the wider community.

Uniquely focused on sustainability and community, The 203 Project challenged designers to embrace existing floor plans and layer new furniture along with reimagined and repurposed pieces to create sophisticated and communal spaces that will remain and leave a lasting impact on the community. Local designers, brands, and partners collaborated to create a once-in-a-lifetime community initiative.

Come see what community talent and generosity can accomplish. Together, we are magical.
