Cambridge’s first co-housing community – Latest
Cambridge Cohousing members are the future residents of Marmalade Lane, Cambridge’s first cohousing community currently being built at the site known as ‘K1’ in Orchard Park, Cambridge. Forty-two homes ranging from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom homes will be ready in June 2018.
The homes are designed by the award-winning architect Meredith Bowles and his team at Mole Architects. Elliott Wood are working in partnership with housing developer Trivselhus.
Cohousing is a way of life in which residents not only get to know their neighbours and enjoy a real sense of community, but jointly manage their living environment together. As well as their own private home, each resident household benefits from shared spaces and facilities that enrich the living experience and encourage a more social way of life.
As a cohousing development, Marmalade Lane is the product of an innovative design process in which members of K1 Cohousing, drawn from all ages and backgrounds, have been involved from the outset. All residents are members of Cambridge Cohousing Ltd, have a stake in the common parts and contribute to the management of the community.
