Durham Central Park

Durham Central Park Cohousing, an innovative cohousing community in Durham, NC, maximizes daylight and captures summer breezes while connecting neighbors with each other in extensive common spaces and porches. FACD collaborated with the future residents and local architects, Weinstein Friedlein Architects, to determine the site and building program. The group asked for an ambitious design plan for their 1/2 acre urban site: wide corridors, lots of daylight, a roof deck, and space for gardens. Laura Fitch helped them make tough choices between individual and common amenities. Residents now have reason to celebrate; they got the best of both – gracious homes and generous common facilities.
