[before_listing images= youtube=null] K1 is a self commissioning opportunity at Orchard Park, Cambridge involving 40 householders. It will be a co-housing community supported by developers.

Community is central to the design of both the site as a whole and the individual homes. We will have a common house where we can share meals, get our post, watch films, have parties or just get together and chat.

Each household will have their own house, built to Passivhaus standard. And their our own outdoor space as well as the communal land.

K1 are looking for potential residents to become members:

-to be actively involved in the creation of a new sustainable community
-to influence the design of the new homes
own a new home that is cheap to run with low utility consumption
-to purchase a unique home within average market prices
take an active role in the long term management of the community
-to contribute and benefit from being part of a community.[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]
