Pettaway Pocket Neighborhood, Little Rock, Ark.

The nine-unit Pettaway Pocket Neighborhood galvanizes urbanization within low-density development.

Homes are clustered around a shared outdoor commons and infrastructure. The proposal provides niche urban market housing at construction costs of $100,000 per unit, excluding site work.

Governed by historic codes, the elevations feature dark wood cladding and white accents to emphasize frontages; some homes face the green.

Simple, one-volume footprints maximize affordability.

Screened porches encourage community interaction.

Some of the models stack living spaces on the second floor. Others could be built as live/work units, or ground-level living areas with a second-story loft for the grandkids.

The three varying prototypes, each with a private indoor-outdoor space, are a typological study of the gable.

The proposed Low-Impact Development (LID) storm water treatment landscape eliminates the use of underground pipes and catch basins, creating a 50 percent savings while solving for chronic flooding problems.
