Why

The purpose of coliving is to create a home environment that inspires and empowers its residents to be active creators and participants in the world around them. These environments cultivate collaboration and serendipity amongst residents and the extended community. Coliving houses enable sustainable lifestyles through sharing and efficient use of resources and space.

Who

Coliving is for people who want a home environment that actively supports them in living with purpose and intention. People who choose coliving include professionals, makers, entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives.

How

Residents unite around a common interest to collaboratively manage a space, share resources, and coordinate activities which contribute creatively and intellectually to the world around them. Many coliving houses offer short-term accommodation and host outward facing events, increasing connections with the broader community and world.

Manifesto for Shared Living

We are exploring new ways of living and creating home. Through this process we have come to value:

  • Community alongside individuality
  • Intentionality over apathy
  • Openness and collaboration over competition
  • Sharing over consumption
  • Inquiry and experimentation over the status quo
  • Responsibility and action over cynicism and resignation
