Purpose\ud The courtyard dwellings of Tbilisi form a critical part of the city’s architectural identity.\ud However, the multiple occupation of these buildings is blamed for confounding their prospects\ud for repair and consequent valorisation as a world heritage site. Models for the shared\ud ownership of residential blocks, have been adapted globally. Some have established\ud communal sources for rehabilitation and maintenance applicable to historic buildings. This\ud paper assesses the relevance of such precedents to the complex and urgent context of Tbilisi’s\ud threatened architectural heritage.\ud Design/methodology/approach\ud The paper uses existing literature and data to establish a hypothesis in support of adopting a\ud collaborative approach for the maintenance and rehabilitation of shared buildings in a\ud challenging and specific context. Using socio-economic data to characterise the occupants of\ud such buildings and current critical sources, the paper investigates how existing collective\ud communities can be empowered to capitalise from their unique social frameworks.\ud Findings\ud It finds evidence to support theoretical claims that there is scope for co-operative networks to\ud flourish there.\ud Originality/value\ud This paper addresses a critical problem in the formulation of conservation plans for Old\ud Tbilisi, it tests the relevance of global exemplars for community repair programmes by\ud reference to existing data for the care of the predominantly domestic architecture of Old\ud Tbilisi at a time of rapid change.
