As a company, Right-Sized Homes and Right-Sized Places work not just for a neighborhood or homeowner but also with them. Thus our projects are built in context with the neighborhood, fitting in with other homes nearby, and with the character, desires, and feel of the neighborhood. We focus on the scale of our individual buildings, taking into account the structure’s height, window placement and size, street setback, stoops, porches, and relationship to the street and adjacent neighbors when developing our homes, in an attempt to maintain neighborhood unity and cohesiveness.
Respecting the existing context of the streetscapes in which we work is important for neighborhood sensitivity, functionality, and sustainability. Buildings which fit and match their respective neighborhoods are more likely to be accepted, used, appreciated, and capable of adaptability further down the road in the building’s lifetime, for generations to come.
