This housing project is geared towards individuals that are aware and willing to live cooperatively with others. Cohousing provides personal privacy combined with the benefits of living in a community where residences share resources and community living. The idea of shared housing is new to North America; it only arrived in 1988 from Denmark.
Through this project, the idea of sharing will be manifested through the use of shared terraces between units. These terraces will provide a beautiful link between neighbours and help bring communities together.
The social interaction and shared resources vary based on the desire of the group of people who actively create their bond. The ideology in North America regarding the desire to be more practical and independent has lowered the value of sharing between communities which are very unfortunate to see. This project will provide hope to our often disassociated society and a loss of sense of community arises.
