The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate how an urban living place type that fosters the development of ideal place, while interjecting aspects of traditional neighborhood design and promoting community interaction can be created through the processes of research and design. This will be accomplished by establishing the current wants, needs, and haves of the American urban dweller as pertaining to urban living, American culture, and psychology of ideal place. This thesis will establish design drivers and provide a prototypical design through the exploration of programming characteristics of current multi-family residential buildings, traditional neighborhood design, and typical single-family dwellings. Through literature review, case studies, interviews, and ethnography, the thesis argues interior design can successfully establish programming function that building form follows to create an urban living place type with integrated aspects of traditional neighborhood design.
