The co-housing concept originated in Denmark in the late 1960s as an alternative to traditional housing models.
There are four characteristics common to most co-housing projects: participatory process, intentional neighborhood
design, extensive common facilities and complete resident management. Quayside Village Co-housing is located in
North Vancouver, British Columbia and has provided nineteen dwelling units in a mix of townhouses and stacked
apartments around a central courtyard which functions as the heart of the community.
