Tearing down the walls

When people talk about co-living and co-working what do they mean? It’s described as a  relatively new phenomenon but when you think about it, people have been co-living their whole lives.

When you are born you co-live with your parents, when you go to university, you co-live with your flatmates, and when you meet someone, again, you’re co-living. It’s something we all do but don’t think about.

 

 

The concept of sharing is not new as people have always shared facilities such as gardens and amenities in residential developments – but what is new is the drive to create better communities for people, socially and economically.

Rapid urbanisation, ageing populations and non-nuclear families means that there is no one size fits all approach anymore. We are all living in different ways with many choosing to move back into cities for jobs, convenience and city living.

Whether you are old or young, the idea of having all the luxuries like a gym, cinema, restaurant, library and bar under the same roof, included in the price of your rent, is a dream for many.

By turning convention on its head and believing it can be done differently, we are creating new spaces to do just this.

We have a transient population choosing to move between cities for work, life and the experience; those who really do value the journey over the destination.

We also know we have an isolation problem with others wanting a community feel rather than being alone. So because we know this, we have taken great care to design with people in mind and to create communities through our fabulous and flamboyant brand, BOHO.

Let us be a part of your story.

What’s my name?

Our vision is that each of our properties will have their own identity, unique to each of the cities where we are.

Simplicity and community are our main characteristics. We’re lucky because we are aren’t constrained by red tape. We’re using advances in technology to our advantage and to make our properties places that put people and safety first.

When you are born you co-live with your parents, when you go to university or college, you co-live with your roommates, and when you meet someone, again, you’re co-living. It’s something that we all do without realising it.

Be bold; be ambitious

Where we are, where we are going, and what we want to achieve, at Structured House, we think about creation and building of new communities.

Be that in new spaces or forgotten locations, we want to get to know our neighbours and invest in people, places and in our cities.

There’s a new wave of thinking that values flexibility and choice over traditional ways of living and working. It’s with one another, with our neighbours, with strangers, with communities creating new community-living and co-living spaces.

Our millennials now demand flexibility moving from city-to-city, job-to-job and our empty nesters want their capital to travel, where we’re seeing a move back into our cities for ease of travel and services. Families are no longer nuclear. There’s no one size fits all.

We don’t just pay lip service to this. We are at the forefront of creating this. Like pioneers, we know that we all need to look at other angles and see what can be achieved and make the change happen.

We see the potential in urban spaces, in unloved and neglected sites, where town and cities can bring back residential living into our cities. We’re ambitious and daring and we are doing it.

And it doesn’t stop there. We not only purchase, design, obtain planning and build, we choose to look after the places we own through the launch of our very own in-house management company, BOHO.

It means we can build for the long-term, get to know our neighbours, look after our properties and our residents. We’re making spaces in places where people want to live, work,  socialising and grow.

Choosing BOHO is a way of life.


 

Creating spaces

We want to create spaces for people to live, to work, to enjoy.

Too many before haven’t looked up.

From the very beginning, our journey takes us to understand the people and places where we operate. Every possibility, every problem, every hurdle that must be overcome, we want to be proud of what we have created and with whom.

 

Following in the footsteps of those who have gone before, we are eager to make our mark on the spaces that we create. It is always our our intention, where we can, to relocate the sculptural artworks within our newly created public spaces. We want to pave the way for our sites to take on a new future while paying homage to the past.
