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.
