We believe that our lives are enriched by places that bring people together.
Co-housing helps us plan for a sustainable future
Community design balances public and private life
Connecting with neighbors is easy
For many, work provides both social interaction and a sense of purpose. Leaving work can bring profound changes. How do we address this, along with all of the other changes that come with age?
We identified three core components:
Community, Autonomy and Sustainability.
Community : Design for Connection
We decided early on that the design of our new home should promote connection by providing opportunities for planned and unplanned contact.
Autonomy : Balance Public and Private
Residents choose their own balance of privacy and level of neighbourly engagement, cultivating a culture of sharing, caring, and a commitment to all.
Sustainability : Plan for the Future
We believe that it is essential to live in a more sustainable manner. Our new home is designed to meet the needs of an aging population, and to reduce our carbon footprint.
