What is Cohousing?

Cohousing communities consist of private, fully-equipped dwellings and extensive common amenities including recreation areas and a common house. Many neighborhoods are planned to keep cars to the periphery, which promotes interacting with neighbors and increases safety for playing children. Shared green space is also a key feature – whether for gardening, playing, or socializing. A final key feature is the common house – the “living room” of the community.¹

Cohousing models do not ask you to throw away your privacy, they ask you to create spaces for community activities, and, most importantly, to use them.
