Co-living

What is co-living?

Co-living is a form of living in a community that comes in many different variations. The idea behind co-living is that residents have their own private studio, but also gain access to shared spaces. For less money. We believe that co-living provides a solution to the problems people face finding affordable housing and that it could inspire people to share more, consume less and live a more social life.

Cities designed for social isolation?
Oct 23, 2019

Although cities are the epicentre of human activity, loneliness is a growing concern. Our city streets are filled with anonymous faces and people rarely know who their neighbours are. The way cities are build is not working in our favour. Urbanites often feel alone and miss a sense of belonging. We believe that redesigning public places and co-living provides a solution to the global loneliness epidemic.

Why green cities are important
Sep 6, 2019

Urbanisation is putting pressure on our planet's resources like never before. Between 2019 and 2025 over 2 billion square meters of new building stock will be developed every year! It is important to consider what impact these new structures will have on our planet and on the people that will inhabit them. We believe a return of timber as main construction material has many environmental benefits and could make cities a better place to live in.

Global affordable housing crisis
Sep 5, 2019

The demand for affordable housing in large cities is at a record high. Housing prices continue to rise and the lack of affordable alternatives is clearly visible. At Habit, we are motivated to help solve the global housing crisis. But what is really causing the surge of housing prices in cities all over the world and what can we do about it? Through better use of space and by sharing living costs, we believe co-living could enable more affordable housing.

Frequently asked questions
Questions?

What is co-living?

Co-living is a form of living in a community that comes in many different variations. The idea behind co-living is that members have their own private space, but gain access to shared facilities. Instead of everyone having their own kitchen, laundry, work space or dining room, these rooms are shared by the community. Private spaces are smaller but designed more efficiently, and members have access to more space and better facilities, for less money.
