What is Coliving?
Coliving is a concept of collaborative living, where sustainability, integration, and collaboration are prized - a concept that is definitely here to stay! Is a real estate term that has recently become popular: it is a new form of habitat born in the United States in the 2000s that integrates the workplace and the home. Here individuals have their own rooms but share common areas like the living room and kitchen.
This new housing formula is the favourite option of millennials, as they have the opportunity to live together in an environment conducive to entrepreneurship, through the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experiences.
Fundamentally, coliving is a cultural distinction, as it can encompass many structural forms, such as rental and ownership, and urban and rural. However, in its current form, coliving tends to be urban and integrated into a single building, house or flat. And the demographics tend towards professionals in their 20s and 30s rather than families, boomers and retirees.
Living in a coliving building means sharing different common spaces, moments, experiences, and projects, without giving up a small amount of privacy. Coliving spaces offer services similar to those of a hotel, such as weekly cleaning or common spaces dedicated to coworking, a gym, a games room or large terraces (depending on the type of property).
Advantages of Coliving
Thanks to the colivings' good location, the ease with which one can access everything is one of its strong points - shopping malls, subways, universities, bars, restaurants, leisure spaces, and tourist attractions.
2. Cost reduction
Sharing a space means cost reduction, doesn't it? Furthermore, as the expenses are already included, the amount to be paid at the end of each month is fixed, which eliminates the surprise factor of having to pay more.
In a space like a coliving, it is impossible not to make new friends, learn about different cultures, share experiences, and exchange ideas.
Because of the strategic location, there is no need to take public transport, which reduces traffic and pollution. Also, the sharing of common spaces is a way to reduce energy costs.
