What is collaborative housing?​

Collaborative housing is a new concept, designed to encourage participation, sharing and community building, while enabling each person to also have their own private and secure home.

Jasmine Grove has been designed specifically to encourage sharing of resources, spaces and everyday activities, allowing a more affordable, sustainable and enjoyable way of living for a group of women over 55 living on their own. The Jasmine Grove community rooms and gardens will include a communal lounge space, a kitchen for cooking and meals, and a garden for self-sustaining vegetables for the whole community to enjoy.

IRT has been part of the UTS collaborative housing guide which provides a number of different stories about how people are developing collaborative ways of living.

Gardening and green space at Jasmine Grove

Gardening, growing produce and communal cooking are central themes in the shared spaces at Jasmine Grove. We hope residents will cook meals together with produce grown in their own garden, building strong social connections at the same time. 

Within the community there are defined spaces for growing vegetables, storage for tools and supplies, and a commercial kitchen in the common area. There are also decorative gardens to tend around the villas.

Residents are encouraged to use these spaces as opportunities to build community, connect with other residents and promote sustainable lifestyles.
