Wybalena Grove was established in the Canberra suburb of Cook in 1975, and comprises 105 townhouse units in a bushland setting of 30 acres. The townhouses vary in size between 60 m2 for a single bedroom unit to 180m2 for a five bedroom unit. Units are grouped in twos, threes, or fours. They are stepped back such that each unit has privacy from its neighbours and unobstructed views. All units have a northerly aspect. Shared facilities include a playing oval, tennis court, pizza oven, and children’s playgrounds. A solar generation system sufficient to match the site’s requirement for public area lighting is installed.
Wybalena Grove was established in 1974 by the Cook-Aranda Cooperative Housing Society. The Cooperative was formed at a time when there was interest in alternative forms of housing and when there was an influx of people moving to Canberra from other places. The origins of this interest resulted from a complex interaction of factors. Some wanted to explore the idea of ‘living cooperatively’. Another group saw the Cooperative as a means to reduce building costs by using the same materials and building at the same time.
