High Street Cohousing Project

The High Street Cohousing project (now Toiora Cohousing) is the first Certified Passive House multi-unit housing development in New Zealand. The project was initiated in 2014 by a small group of local Dunedin residents who believed that by developing the land as a group they could create something far more sophisticated than the typical NZ 4 bedroom/2 car garage subdivision.

The group purchased a central city site formerly occupied by High Street School and worked with Architype to develop plans to create an affordable, sustainable and sociable cohousing neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood which is designed around a common central green space includes 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, in addition, occupants will also have access to a range of shared facilities housed within the existing re purposed school building. Shared facilities include a large multi purpose space, commercial sized kitchen, workshop, laundry, guest rooms and social space and a bookable meeting rooms.
