Renowned Architect Charles Durrett to Present on the Power of Community-Designed Cohousing in East Vancouver

Join us for an evening to remember with Charles Durrett, a leading architect in the field of cohousing, at a public presentation on the future of this innovative housing concept, with a focus on the potential for community-designed cohousing in East Vancouver.

Durrett, who has designed and consulted on over 60 cohousing communities worldwide, believes that the future of housing lies in empowering residents to design and build their own communities. In his presentation, Durrett will discuss the benefits of cohousing, including increased social connections, shared resources, and a sense of community ownership, and how this model can help address some of the biggest challenges facing the housing industry, such as affordability and sustainability.

“The East Van community is a perfect fit for cohousing,” says Durrett. “With its strong sense of community and commitment to sustainability, East Van residents have the opportunity to create a new kind of housing model that truly reflects their values and needs.”

Explore the potential for forming East Van Cohousing, a community where residents design and build their own homes and community spaces. This model has already been successful in many cities worldwide and provides a unique solution to the affordable housing crisis, while also fostering strong social connections and a sense of community ownership.
