Recipient of the  Progressive Architecture Citation for Architectural Research

 

This book is a collection of guidelines for the site design of low-rise, high-density family housing.

 

It is intended as a reference tool, primarily for housing designers and planners, but also for developers, housing authorities, citizens’ groups, and tenants’ organizations-anyone involved in planning or rehabilitating housing.

 

It provides guidelines for the layout of buildings, open spaces, community facilities, play areas, walk ways, and the myriad components that make up a housing site.

 

We developed this book with the view that life is better in environments that are appropriate to people’s needs and congruent with their values.

 

Clare and Wendy, 1986

 

Still in print after 27 years and widely used as a textbook, it remains a valued tool for housing design practitioners to this day.

 

Front Gate Privacy from “Housing as if People Mattered”, 1986

 

A quotation from the book:

If there is also a bias in favor of access for disabled persons in the book, I take credit for it.

Certainly the years I spent at Berkeley working on research projects studying barrier-free design dramatically changed my views about access.

I now see barriers to access for disabled people everywhere.

We have conscientiously attempted to remove them – and the stereotypes they often reflect – in this book.

Wendy Sarkissian, 1986
