A home is more than a house. It is the building block of community. A range of dwelling types cater to a broad demographic. Dwellings include co-living rooms, duplexes and small single-family homes. Efficient private quarters are paired with generous living areas and outdoor amenities for vital community functions. The spaces between buildings constitute a “third space” for essential human needs beyond the workplace and home. Embanked parking preserves the heart of the site as a landscaped pedestrian zone. 

The architecture encourages casual run-ins in the course of daily life. Comfortable, programmed outdoor spaces invite meaningful exchanges between neighbors, either in large gatherings or intimate settings. Private porches overlooking the commons help to enliven and provide natural surveillance for this space. Individually metered solar arrays promote environmental awareness, grounding residents’ vital role as agents and stewards of their community.
