In Terramagne-Lincoln, Gabriel's Place is a cohousing project for former male prostitutes and unwed young fathers. The sitemap covers 1.4 hectares with a reed bed for sewage treatment. There are 29 units in the rowhouses and another 4 studio apartments in the Common House, making 33 units in all. Each workshop building holds 2 spaces, for a total of 6. Since most of the rowhouses have bedrooms with ensuites, they can be used either by families or by unrelated roommates, making the units more flexible. The playspace at the top of the sitemap is open grass, while the one just below the allotment garden has a playground marked in yellow. The trees and bushes planted around the lot include mostly native fruit and nut species, along with some orchard fruits such as apples. All of the graywater from the buildings feeds into a reedbed for water treatment, and the clean water then flows out into the city's rainwater management system.
