Cohousing 01

Project Status: Completed 2015

Location: Nelson, BC

Working closely with the Nelson Land Group’s development team and the previous architect’s work, Studio 9 was engaged to further refine the interior layout, develop building form and styles, help determine colour and material palettes, and complete a site plan for this cohousing development near Nelson.  Our goal was to focus on creating customized living spaces for a diversity of families all committed to the core values of community living.  One highlight of this project has been to experience and be part of the amazing working structure of Nelson Land Group’s democratic decision-making process.  Through this process, we witnessed something that started as an idea shared between a group of like-minded people several years ago, materialize into a collection of homes all part of a tightly knit community.
