THE ARCHITECTURE OF MULTIGENERATIONAL LIVING


Grand designs for grandparents, grandkids, and everybody in between.

Three, four, or sometimes more generations of the same family often opt to live together under one roof. The 20th-century emphasis on a single-family home for suburbanites or a swanky bachelor pad is falling short of modern needs, instead, we are seeing more tiers of the family unit preferring to live together.

Come Together explores the why, what, where, and perhaps most importantly, the how, of homes that succeed to be liveable for multiple generations. With insight from inhabitants cohabiting in multi-generational homes, this book explores subjects such as the opportunity to care for one another, how to save on costs, and why this lifestyle can forge closer relationships. Featuring architecturally stunning designs from around the globe and voices of leading architects championing the benefits of this family-style living, Come Together points to the changing face of the family home.
