Abstract/Summary Cohousing attempts to secure the social advantages of a more communal life from an intentional neighbourhood, without sacrificing the integrity and privacy of individual families or households. What difference does growing up in cohousing make to children's perceptions of their neighbourhood? Children in two cohousing communities in Denmark were asked to do a drawing of where they lived and these drawings were compared with drawings done by children of similar ages from a primary school nearby one of the communities. I analyse the children's drawings and speculate on the significance of the evident differences between the drawings of the two groups, for social relations and environmental reform.
