Roberts Creek Cohousing

This cohousing development was designed in association with Teryl Mullock Architect, and consists of a total of thirty one units. They range from one, two, three, and four bedroom units and are located on a twenty acre parcel in Roberts Creek. A common house located in the center provides a large kitchen, dining area, lounge and activity space for residents to use. The primary focus of the site planning was to fit the homes within the trees, and connect them with an extensive pedestrian walkway system.

The site is designed to provide personal privacy as well as create opportunities for interaction with neighbours. Green building features are integrated throughout the design, and automobile use typicall decreases. Cohousing residents participate in the planning and design process from the beginning, from site selection through the site design and the buildings.
