As the architects who brought the concept over from Europe in the 1980’s, Kathryn and Charles will provide a brief history of the cohousing movement, then expand upon the modern-day resilience of these resident-initiated neighborhoods. Cohousing thrives in both urban and rural contexts, offering the privacy of your own fully-furnished home paired with extensive common amenities. These communities offer a variety of home sizes, fitting for the budgets of singles, couples and families.
