Co-living is making a comeback. Co-living initiatives are emerging in major cities all over the world. This new wave of co-living attracts young professionals (25 – 35 years) looking for flexible housing options. Accessibility, shared facilities and social life are the main reasons for young professionals to move into a co-living space. Curious what co-living has to offer? Or full of bright ideas on what the perfect co-living space in Groningen should look like? During this workshop we will discuss essential co-living themes, exploring potential residents’ needs, preferences and concerns.
The idea: designing a co-living space where locals and internationals feel at home. For locals, this space offers an upgrade from a student room without the need to settle down. For internationals co-living combines the benefits of temporary housing with being a part of a community. We will look at both the spatial and social design of a co-living space. How does the ideal co-living space fit your lifestyle? How much are you willing to share? And with whom? How do we create a thriving community of locals and internationals in the heart of Groningen? These questions will help us - potential residents and professionals - to explore the world of co-living.
