Co-Living platform

of the second generation


Co-Living means community

Co-living is a new way for people to live in cities, focused on community and convenience. 

For the individual, living in a co-living community provides many advantages as compared to traditional living options. There are many benefits like shared facilities – areas, rooms, equipment, or services for particular activities. 

The most common benefits include community, convenience, cost savings, and comfort. 

In the last 2 years, Co-Living has grown rapidly across Europe and shows little signs of abating. 

The hybrid nature of the Co-Living sector and its inherent flexibility is what will drive its future growth. The sector has grown to almost 25,000 beds in the last two years and will continue to grow at pace as more markets emerge. 

Co-Living provides a natural progression in housing solutions, not just for occupiers today, but for future generations.
