The Cohousing Concept

The Housing Solution

Cohousing communities respond to the basic needs of today’s households—child and elder care, social contact and economic efficiency—by combining the autonomy of private dwellings with the advantages of community living. Over 120 communities have been built in the United States since 1991. Over one hundred more communities are in the planning or construction stages.

  • Intergenerational neighborhoods.
  • Environmentally sensitive design, emphasizing pedestrian access and open space.
