About me

Good housing is hard to find in Wellington. The Buckley Road group is seeking to get around this this by building a small CoHousing community in the southern suburb of Southgate.

The group are six friends and family, who are working together with Spacecraft Architects to design and construct their homes. The group works collectively on the project, which is based on shared values of efficiency, sustainability, and bringing the benefits of small-scale community living into the urban environment.
