Alternative Development Models
International Cohousing Summit
Sam Brown, Tim Riley, and Camilla Nielsen-Englyst

Sam Brown is an architect and coordinates the Live Projects Programme at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture. Together with young professionals participating in the programme, he will talk about their unique collaboration with OpHouse to provide pre-design services for forming groups and developing project briefs, which can otherwise present a barrier for new groups starting out. Originating as a ‘live’ element of an academic programme, the Live Projects Programme has evolved into Live Works, an off-campus project office offering ongoing services to groups as they acquire land and move into the development phase. In focusing on participatory process and continuing community engagement, the model offers a means to support the community-led housing sector in a context of uncertain and short-term government support.

Tim Riley from Property Collectives in Australia will discuss their collaborative model utilizing impact investment to create citizen-led cohousing communities. Since 2010 Property Collectives has established itself as the leading deliberative development group in Australia. They focus on development advisory for build-to-hold clients; impact investment; and an at-cost, citizen-led, building group model which is developing 80 homes across 10 projects in Melbourne.
