There is no more powerful correlate of human health and wellbeing than positive social relationships. Multi-family housing, through design, layout, and location, can exert a significant effect on local relationships, neighborhood trust and residents sense of belonging. We propose a program to gather, refine and illustrate the evidence linking design and social wellbeing in multi-family housing. Insights from environmental psychology, sociology and public health will be translated into accessible materials which will offer guidance for developers, builders, policymakers and the people who buy or rent homes in BC. Learnings will be shared in print and online.
