I recollect that McCamant and Durrett found that with smaller groups with fewer than 10 households, any personality clashes seemed to echo loudly. With medium sizes, which they sized as 12-18 households), there was enough space for individual differences etc. With cohousing groups with more than 20 households, they found that inhabitants complained of the anonimity, unyieldy decision making etc. If you'd incorporate A Pattern Language's conclusions on clusters, it would seem that cohousing would ideally comprise of two clusters.
