Several researchers established the importance of open, unbuilt residential community spaces. Using a complex nomenclature in various ways, these areas are critical in contemporary planning practice, frequently neglected and treated as leftovers. With their usefulness in the Indian context of socially engaged and sometimes intrusive communities, these spaces are gradually losing their position in today's residential environments due to pressure to provide mass migration patterns to the rapidly rising population. Due to their inherent order and dignity, these public spaces that offer residents physical, psychological, and perceptual comfort were present in historically developed Indian cities. Many new housing projects by renowned designers have also used well-designed neighbourhood architecture features. This work is a comparative analysis of three selected projects aimed at improving appropriate methods for contemporary Indian history and achieving neighbourhood comfort and resident sense of belonging. It concludes with a set of design guidelines after analysing these case studies which shall be applicable solutions to physical, perceptive, psychological and social problems in the present context in neighbourhood residential environments.
