Common house, great house – people call them different things. But, whatever the name, they act as a center of social activity in a cohousing project. They serve as a space for joint meals, meetings, parties, concerts, movies, workshops, exercise classes and celebrations.
Designs vary greatly. They can be designed as multipurpose rooms with dividers for multiple simultaneous activities. Spaces for relaxation and conversation are provided.
A design workshop during the planning process will allow us tailor the design of the common house to our needs.
Other common facilities may include toy storage (kayaks, canoes, bicycles), repair shop, gardens, patios, outdoor dining space, spa, sauna.
