We are a Calgary cohousing community working to build:
An Old Fashioned NeighboUrhood
Cohousing is a community of private homes clustered around shared space, with a sustainable and people-oriented design
Designed for spontaneous interactions
Support for families
Vibrant sense of community
Have you had a conversation with a neighbour lately?
Do you feel comfortable knocking at the house next door for an egg?
Do your kids have neighbourhood play dates, no coordination needed?
In a cohousing community, the answer to these questions is YES!
Welcome to our site! We’re 12 households (& growing!) who are planning, laughing, collaborating, sharing meals (and the occasional beer) while we co-create Calgary’s latest human-friendly cohousing community.
Cohousing combines private home ownership with access to extensive shared facilities in a sustainable and people-oriented design. We want to live in a dynamic neighbourhood where we know and trust our neighbours, while still having privacy in our own homes.
In cohousing, neighbours maintain independent incomes and lifestyles, while participating in a ‘sharing economy’ that enriches their lives. Each home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen. The community has a ‘common house’, which may include a larger kitchen and dining area, and recreational spaces used for children’s play areas, yoga, music, woodworking etc…, as well as guest rooms. This space is used on a daily basis by many in the community, allowing homeowners to build a smaller home for themselves. Shared outdoor space includes gardens, open space and parking. Cohousing is designed by future residents via a participatory process, making it unique to anything being built in Calgary today.
Cohousing is a great way for our kids to grow up with a strong network of care, to play freely in a neighbourhood of all ages that celebrates their experiences and holds their best interests in mind. Cohousing neighbourhoods are designed for people-focused living, and facilitate a sharing culture. It creates an environment where everyone feels supported and respected at each stage of our life's journey.
mosaic village will be a thriving, caring, diverse, multigenerational community.
