In our designs we assert the imperative that communities function better when there are “eyes on the street.” It establishes a funny kind of ownership to this area we refer to as ”the commons”—that which we share as a community—the street, sidewalk, pocket parks, activity from cars, bicycles and pedestrians. Because our garages aren’t in the front of our homes, designing to claim this space comes without tremendous effort. Additionally, though, the topography of this year’s Tour Home in Salem permitted us to lower the garage as well. A win, indeed. Inside the main living area, along with “eyes on the street,” we capture what the revered architect and theorist Christopher Alexander thought to be essential: natural light coming inside from multiple directions. And rooms with light coming from all sides, that is the jackpot. Come see us. We would love to show you what we have done.
