Object CoHousing Numero Zero is a project developed by “CoAbitare” Association in 2009. Its objective is to bring residents closer in order to create a collaborative lifestyle, less individualistic, even if own privacy and spaces are safeguarded. It is a participatory design which takes place every Saturday afternoon. Everyone has precise tasks: bank calls, relations with the municipality or the district associations, research of materials, etc.

The most important purpose is to create a flexible model, which could be doubled in its design phases – from the statute to trading dynamics – and above all as a lasting experience over time.

CoHousing Numero Zero is a small demonstration of how the vision of an eco-city can concretely come to life. It is characterized by a terrace, a garden, common areas and accommodations for 8 families living there, whose members all actively participate in the design and implementation of the project.
