The typical American neighbourhood is impersonal, made up of large houses on large lots, with large garages whose remote openers provide residents instant access inside. There's never any need to see or be seen! The good news is that a growing number of homeowners are saying they want more. Pocket neighbourhoods are alternative living arrangements that provide shelter and security, convenience, comfort and meaning. In a typical pocket neighbourhood, parking is intentionally separated from houses, which surround a landscaped common area. Homeowners walk to their doors, past the neighbours they might otherwise never know. This book by architect and author Ross Chapin describes existing pocket neighbourhoods and co-housing communities and provides inspiration for creating new ones.
