Co-Caring Housing

The major concerns of the neighborhood Melrose, Bronx are drivers for this housing project: high population of single parenthood and health and wellness issues. This housing project, the “Co-Caring” community, seeks to distribute multiple tasks and roles to share burdens and to alleviate the pressure of raising children with limited physical, emotional, and financial means under a single parenthood. The common spaces not only include communal kitchens but also farming spaces that promote healthier life. The idea is also reflected with the proposal of “Food and Nutrition Museum” on the ground level, providing green spaces, marketplace, and an educational facility for the public. The process of learning, growing, and making food intends to foster a collaborative and caring community.
