Cohousing Unit Design

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the typical range of size and type of housing units in cohousing communities? Do certain layouts work better in cohousing? How do you support community at the front door and privacy within the house? What about healthy, green materials? To answer these questions, Laura will show examples from many communities (urban and rural). Then, we will have an open discussion about unit design with Laura answering questions from both the perspective of her experience as a cohousing architect and 25 years living in a small standard cohousing unit.
