The co-living is a model of a shared house, in which the neighbours have common spaces, in addition to a private home. These shared areas occupy around 20% of the total space of each building and the residents themselves decide on their uses, which can be very diverse– laundry, vegetable garden, bicycle room, library, joint kitchen and dining room, rooftop, inner patios… These common areas encourage the development and strengthening of bonds between the neighbours, giving rise to new ways of relating.
Co-living homes meet strict environmentally friendly criteria. They have a bioclimatic design and timber structure; and they are labelled as “CO2 Nulo” (CO2-free) buildings, since their use does not release CO2 and we make up for the emissions during construction.
They are nearly zero energy building (NZEB), built using Passivhaus criteria, fully electrified and with a low energy demand for heating and cooling.
In addition, they include a photovoltaic energy production facility, a system for saving and exploiting rainwater and the use of certified ecological materials, avoiding toxic elements in the construction.
