BEACHSCAPE

Urban + Master Planning

Neighborhood character is important in the South, especially within a historic district. The character of the street has space for living: sidewalk paving as flooring, the overhanging tree canopy as a ceiling, lighting provided by streetlights and porches by night, and furnishings consisting of vegetation, planters, stoops, porches, benches and signage.

Architectural styles for narrow lots include Creole Cottages, shotgun houses, dogtrots, a side-gallery Charleston house, and double shotgun plans. Front and side porches, gabled and hip roofs, pyramidal towers, arcades and awnings, wooden shutters, nautical-style guardrails, and picket fences all contribute to the charm of a Southern coastal town.
