We designed several buildings specifically for co-housing and co-living and hospitality.
There are different groups of co-housing but in general residents have shared interests, intentions and values. Living in a group is a wonderful way to improve social connections and participate more in society. NxtGen Houses strongly believes that because of the various benefits the concept of community living will probably become a preferred type of residential living.
Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities. Co-housing means living close to, but not with, each other in the same apartment. Neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities such as shared meals, parties, meetings, and sports. Co-housing is not only for seniors but for everyone that wants to feel as if they are part of a neighbourhood and other people are looking out for them and one another.
Co-living is a shared living concept where residents have their own bedroom and bathroom and share common areas like the kitchen and other living spaces. Living in close proximity allows to connect with the people around you by coming together for activities such as meals and hanging out in the common living areas. By pooling “community” resources and sharing living spaces the quality-of-life for residents improves. People want to escape from the isolation they are in and are increasingly looking for a “tribe” they want to belong to.
