Intentional Design Creates Community Spaces

Pocket neighborhoods are designed to promote community but also have enough autonomy and privacy for members to do their own thing.
One design detail that supports this is the orientation of the houses.
By nesting the houses–i.e. the ‘open’ part of one house like its entrance faces the ‘closed’ part of another like its side or back, separation is created without a big yard.
Strategic use of low fences and perennials create further barriers for the tightly spaced houses.
