Architect Grace Kim lecture on Cohousing, Learn More
A neighborhood where everyone owns their own home — but works together to maintain and improve their surroundings. A community that nurtures both children and adults and encourages aging in place. A place where you can choose to participate in growing your own food and take active steps to live sustainably and affordably. These are the concepts behind cohousing, a type of intentional community.
In cohousing, residents take an active role in designing and governing their neighborhoods, with a conscious commitment to living in community. Spaces are designed to optimize both private space and social connection. You’ll have full access to open space, courtyards, play areas and a community center. Cohousing neighborhoods are designed for pedestrians, with parking around the perimeter. This design principle fosters interaction between neighbors, which in turn helps build real community.
Cohousing began in Denmark and was brought to the United States in the 1970s. There are over 200 cohousing communities in the U.S., including quite a few here in New England. Rocky Corner will be the first cohousing community in Connecticut.
