SITUATE | DESIGN | BUILD is working with students and Canopy Cohousing (http://canopycohousing.ca/welcome-to-canopy-cohousing/), to envision the first Cohousing community in Toronto! Cohousing is a model of housing in which 24-36 households live intentionally. Each hosehold has their own house or apartment and in addition to this collectively owns a common house. The common house could include anything from a shared kitchen and dining space, game room, built-in daycare, library, music room, workshop etc. Each community decides on the shared living spaces, in exchange, each unit is smaller than usual. Cohousing in Toronto would create a different model for intensifying the city in a sustainable manner.
You can link multiple Initiatives that share a common administrator:
Shape My City connects you to people across Toronto to share, discuss and create the future of this city. Help build the network by promoting an initiative of your own or explore a topic to discover the people and projects that share your vision. We all have an important role to play in shaping the future of our city, Shape My City makes it easier than ever.
