Whether it’s a circle of huts in a primitive village or the ordered layout of a traditional town square, humans tend naturally to congregate around a shared center space, or commons.
Simply defined, a Pocket Neighborhood or Cottage Community is styled to recapture the character and beauty of a time when people sat on front porches, grew their own vegetables, and chatted with neighbors.
A Pocket Neighborhood undoubtedly promotes community, while at the same time they also have enough privacy and autonomy for homeowners to do their own thing. This is generally accomplished through clever design orientations. All driveways and garages are to the back, all front porches face the common area and related amenities—which could be anything from a common greene, to community gardens, substantial landscaping, dog parks, or outdoor kitchen.
Our Cottages are singular entities, sufficient for daily activities, while the shared space allows for group activities and fosters relationships among those who live around them.
