Arbors at Stagecoach Village is a 23-home development on a 5-acre wooded site. It targets the home buyer looking for the quality in construction and finishes they have grown accustomed to in their previously larger home, but in a smaller well laid-out floor plan. Arbors Development in Little Rock, Ark., uses small cottage homes designed with a consistent Arts and Crafts architectural theme.
A rear alley around the perimeter of the site provides vehicular access to each home while the fronts of the units were oriented around a common green space. Spaces were intentionally layered from open public (common areas) to semiprivate (front porches), to private spaces inside the home. This allows for places of interest and seamless transition from exterior to interior spaces, thus creating an environment where a sense of community could grow.
