A Passion for Sustainable, Affordable Housing.

Missing Middle Housing

Missing Middle Housing includes a range of “house-scale” buildings with multiple units—compatible in scale and form with detached single-family homes—located in a walkable neighborhood. They provide solutions along a spectrum of affordability to address the mismatch between the available U.S. housing stock and shifting demographics.

Pocket Neighborhoods

Pocket neighborhoods as clustered groups of houses gathered around an open courtyard where neighbors have a sense of stewardship in the common ground they share. Large front porches serve as outdoor living rooms facing a shared green space with a walking path where parents can exercise and socialize while kids and dogs play.
