“It's ridiculous for developers to be the only source of housing; and in the Bay Area, it's no longer sustainable. This is why we need OVID. They help real people take housing into their own hands."
-Lara Murphy, MD, Bay Area Physician Scientist
M. Corbin Jones is Managing Principal @ OVID Design+Development. He started the firm in 2017 in response to the severe housing shortages in US West Coast Cities. After the State of California passed landmark legislation to allow residential property owners to legally build and rent additional dwelling units on their property, Corbin saw the supreme opportunity in helping everyday homeowners develop the land they own. Fast forward to 2021, Corbin now provides design, permitting, entitlements, and construction consulting to clients around California helping to execute on projects, large and small, that improve the overall value of the land they own. With OVID as your residential construction partner, Corbin ensures you'll discover opportunities to improve the utility and functionality of your property in ways that maximize the residual value and income potential of your land.

We design with simplicity and the surrounding context in mind. We respond effectively to both the natural and built elements on a site to create environmentally responsive spaces that are attractive and comfortable.

Because we understand ‘the numbers’, our designs result in increased property values and opportunities for passive rental income.

We have a strong command of the key roles and responsibilities for getting the project done as well as the knowledge and experience to tackle the unexpected.
