10/02/12 – Most of The Vaux's residents live within a gated community, but nineteen first-floor units face the public sidewalk with street access. A few owners have now installed gates on their patios to provide what architects call "defensive space" and discourage unwanted visitors, solicitors, and crazies. If you're an owner of such a unit and you want to add a gate, talk with your neighbors and have a look at what they've already accomplished. They can discuss the pros and cons and suggest the right contractors.
