What Is Coliving
Coliving (or cohousing), we understand differently. In this case, the initiative starts with an external developer, and its tenants normally live in rent. In addition, the promoter can understand coliving from different points of view.
From a social perspective, in the case of coliving or cohousing, architecture has to address the same social and relational purposes, but it is more difficult since it does not work from the beginning with a specific group that defines a common purpose, as in the case of cohousing. In coliving, the developer defines the architecture, looks for the land, the financing, and, finally, enters the community.
This model is aimed at people who cannot or do not want to own the property or even collective property in the right of use.
