Phoenix Cohousing of Auckland, New Zealand, is playing with the idea of retrofitting or rebuilding a commercial or industrial site in the city in such a way that it will have a central atrium, two or three stories tall, at the bottom of which would be our dining room. Other common spaces would be distributed throughout the building rather than concentrated in one spot as in a normal common house. Thus a music room in one spot, a quiet reading room/library in another, workshops clustered together near the under-building parking. Other small nooks (a few chairs beside bright windows, perhaps a teapot nearby) would be scattered on differed levels. We have also discussed the idea of having several teen rooms (bedrooms) for our older children when they might want to have more autonomy than living in our own apartments might allow. We have a site in mind, though it is far from certain that it will be appropriate, or that we will end up acquiring it. Our ideal, at least the ideal of some of our members, is quite urban.
