Ohu team ~ Office for Holistic Urbanism
Ohu Development is a new business set up to build community by building buildings.
As we transition into the creative century and out of the productive century we are seeing a growing demand for places where people connect with one another - this shift is blurring the boundaries between where people live, work and play. We believe the 21st Century city is a place where developments will be driven by cultivating meaningful relationships and growing social capital as much as providing a financial return.
Ohu Development has three strands of work in progress: identifying and scoping community led property developments in Christchurch with the goal of supporting a select few to be investor ready by the Social Enterprise World Forum (Sept 2017, Christchurch). Second, we are building a network of aligned organizations in order to best serve a project’s successful development, making connections in order to leverage strengths. In parallel, we are researching and developing the legal and financial frameworks needed to support more equitable investment into property.
We are keen to meet people who have projects they want to develop with their community as well as people from organizations that would like to support community led property development.
In my spare time I make collages and I write about food.
