It is well known that populations tend to concentrate in places where they can achieve a better lifestyle, a place where they have everything or almost everything within their reach, and to achieve such a way of life, cities can be the ideal place for many: good job opportunities, short distances, various transportation options, good schools, quality public services, lots of entertainment and many other reasons, are usually the cause why people demand to live in an urban area.
But there is also the other side of the coin, in cities that have an overpopulation problem it is more complicated to take control over so many people, which leads to insecurity, pollution, traffic, few affordable housing offers, but far from pointing out guilty of these situations, there must be alternatives that counteract some of these conditions.
Where Does The Idea Of Co-Living Come About
The concept is 100% linked to that of co-working, which means sharing a workspace (usually between entrepreneurs and ‘freelance’ workers), with whom there is perhaps no professional relationship and is linked to the current mode of life in which the millennial generation unfolds.
In addition to the above, a recurring case emerged in Silicon Valley. Many young entrepreneurs, most graduates of the university, ran into the problem of the housing shortage, which also caused exaggeratedly high prices and the idea of offering not only a workspace but a place where professionals could live and make synergies. This is how Silicon Valley has already earned the nickname “the cradle of co-living .”
In this way, the co-living options was extended to other places in the United States, and later globally. But co-living goes beyond this idea because it aims to be, above all, a lifestyle in which the exchange of ideas, experiences, and sustainability are the fundamental pillars.
