I guess all of the other buiilding I have been in for various social
gatherings, including dinners, don't count.  What's the difference between
an apartment/condominium clubhouse and a commen house?  Legally, they
are often the same.  Socially, the commen house gets a lot more use.

I have very good spacial perception.  I also have spent a lot of time
trying to understand the "feel" of various spaces.  Also, I've had one
well known architect ask me why I didn't pursue a career in architecture
(answer: I've got a good caareer in computers that I like very much).

If you really are only interested in opinions from people living in
cohousing, I suggest you learn Danish.
