High Street Passive House Cohousing

The High Street Cohousing project is NZs second Cohousing neighbourhood and the country’s first Passive House multi unit housing development. The project was initiated in 2014 by a small group of local people who thought that NZ could do better than endless subdivisions full of stand alone 4 bedroom/2 car garage houses.

The group purchased a central city site formerly occupied by High Street School and for the past 5 years they have been working with Architype and builders, Ehaus, to develop plans to create an affordable, sustainable and sociable cohousing neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood which is designed around a common central green space will include 24 homes of varying sizes. All houses are freehold unit titles and will have everything one would expect in a typical house, kitchen, dining, lounge, bathrooms and laundry facilities etc. however occupants will also have access to a range of shared facilities housed within the existing re purposed school building. Shared facilities include a dining room, commercial sized kitchen, workshop, laundry, guest rooms and social space and a bookable meeting rooms.

The group have just signed the building contract with Ehaus and construction is expected to begin in early Nov 2018.
