Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities is an in-depth exploration of a rewarding type of housing for ones who value their independence but long for more connection with those around them. Written by the award-winning team that wrote the original Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves and first brought cohousing to North America, this fully-illustrated manual combines nuts-and-bolts practical considerations and design ideas with extensive case studies of dozens of diverse communities in Europe and North America.

Cohousing communities create unique opportunities for designing more sustainable lifestyles. Whether urban, suburban or rural; senior or intergenerational; retrofit or new, the authors show how the physical structures of cohousing communities lend themselves to a more efficient use of resources, and can make everything from gardening to childcare to socializing easier.

Creating Cohousing is a resource for anyone interested in more environmentally and socially sustainable living.

 

Charles Durrett and Kathryn McCamant are award-winning architects who introduced the concept of cohousing to the US with their book Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves. They have designed and developed over fifty cohousing communities in the United States and consulted on many more around the world. Charles is also the author of The Senior Cohousing Handbook: A Community Approach to Independent Living.
