    A neighborhood is a toolkit that allows you to evolve and strengthen communities, either new or existing. Where our responsibilities lay as designers and planning professionals is to give our best quality and most efficient version of this toolkit we possibly can. The result of this being neighborhoods that are distinctive and have a clear identity: with residents having a sense of ownership, to be passed down and adapted by future generations. They provide plenty of opportunity for interactions, balanced with a good degree of privacy. Spaces and buildings should be resilient and built to last, but should also be flexible to allow residents to adapt them to suit their needs.
