Each pocket neighborhood comprises seven cottage homes overlooking an intimate courtyard setting to promote socialization through small-scale living. The result creates smaller, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods within the larger community which capitalize on garden connections and outdoor views. The over-under cottages in each pocket neighborhood maximize site utilization while providing compact floor plans that are affordable, yet maintain open and livable spaces with appealing views in multiple directions. #RoseVillaPocketNeighborhoodsandMainStreet #DesignforAgingKnowledgeCommunity #RLPSArchitects #SpecialProjects #DFAR12 #CaseStudies #BestPractices #RoseVilla #DFA
