Addressing the challenge of scaling non-speculative housing models, our project reimagines how a mixed-use cooperative housing development could be conceived at a neighborhood scale. The project proposes a strategy to network a series of interventions on odd lots in Zürich into a ‘distributed cooperative’, bypassing the need for large sites favored by commercial developers. Unlocking unrealized potential through digital planning tools, the strategy is based on the ‘extended home’: disaggregating and dispersing the shared amenities found in a single development across a cluster of smaller mixed-use buildings within a comfortable walking distance. From communal kitchens to wellness retreats, the domestic footprint is increased via access to a network of high quality common spaces. These programs are underpinned by a digital platform to manage their collective use. The project explores an updated model of sustainable shared living for the human-centered ‘smart city’ of the future.
