High Street Passivhaus Cohousing

Urban Cohousing Otepoti Ltd. has purchased the old High Street School and plans to create an intergenerational cohousing neighbourhood in High Street, Dunedin are now well advanced. The development aims to encourage social interaction and will be built on ecological values. It will include around 22 homes with common facilities and workshop/social space.

The new multi storey terraced homes are designed to meet the passivhaus standard which will result in 90% reductions in space heating costs over conventional construction and unprecedented thermal comfort.  The entire development is be designed to facilitate spontaneous socialisation supporting neighbourly community.

The development comprises properties catering for a range of household sizes and incomes. The cost of social space and ecobuild will be balanced against affordability constraints. The existing school building will be repurposed to accommodate a range of common facilities.

The project will seek to be an exemplar of sustainable design and living and will have close links to the wider community.
