Adelaide Co-Housing Information Session

Co-Housing offers an opportunity to live in a high-functioning pocket neighbourhood where people know each other, care about each other, and support each other.

Co-Housing makes people's lives more connected, more economical, more convenient, more ecologically sustainable, more healthy, and more fun.


Key features of a Co-Housing Community include:

- Participatory Process: the future residents participate in the planning and design of the the building, and the establishment of their governance policies and proceedures.

- Intentional Neighbourhood Design: the physical design purposefully encourages sociability that welcomes all age groups, is disability friendly, and embraces cultural diversity.

- Extensive Common Facilities: common areas are designed for daily use and supplement private living areas.

- Complete Resident Management: the residents manage the decisions of common concern at regular community meetings.

- Optimum Community Size: 15 - 35 dwellings, accommodating a full variety of age groups and household configurations, particularly families with children.

- Purposeful Separation of Cars: carparking is located away from the private residences.

- Evening Meals: regular community meals are the life blood of a higly social cohousing community.

- Co-Development Process: the Steering Commitee establish a strong working relationship with the design team, financiers, and the construction team.


You are invited to come along to find out more about Co-Housing, how it might fit with your lifestyle, where our project is up to, and how you can become involved in this exciting project.
