Communal living spaces foster community for all ages | USA TODAY Communal living spaces foster community for all ages | USA TODAYA huge range of definition for co-living, but our version of it is a – is a very supportive group of like-minded and diverse people in our particular over 30 year age range, and we have people who are everything from lawyers and filmmakers to Professor’s. I’M an architect everyone’s doing really interesting things in the world two complementary experience: all of the public areas are shared, so shared living rooms, shared bathrooms. Everyone has a private bedroom and then we also have an event space, where we share that actually, with the the community and host events on an almost daily basis now and a roof deck, which is which is kind of like an outdoor Roof Garden. And we do smaller events there and working it’s a building with two floors in a large rooftop. We have 17 resident and an event space in 19 year olds, living together in a dormitory. This is a clean, peaceful space of responsible adults. We took out all the friction points of living together. Everyone has their own space. We have a maid that comes in and once a week, so you never have to worry about anything being dirty coming home to a lot of Mormon supported. I can order privacy. I think that’s a major concern for folks to be sitting on your own or you’ll. Just a couple of roommates are a lost face is very much, but we wanted to be so it’s like your own Haven. It’S like how and you’re just actually your own apartment within a larger community, so my space is the size of a regular studio space. Take a look at this co-living arrangement in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Lightning Society Lofts in Bushwick, Brooklyn is a “collaborative living project” that sees 17 adults under one roof. After years of living alone and a six-month-long apartment hunt in New York City, 27-year-old Jade X found what she called the “holy grail” of living situations – roommates.
For two years, the hotel manager had been renting a $1,200-a-month one-bedroom apartment in a residential section of the Bronx, where she says she didn’t have any friends, felt little sense of community and “there was literally nothing to do.”
“I didn’t feel safe, and it really didn’t fit my vibe,” the free-spirited fashion design enthusiast said. “I liked the price of the apartment, but then again, you get what you pay for.”
After a friend recommended that she look into one of the metro area’s many communal living companies, Jade, who legally changed her last name to X, did some digging and quickly applied. Two weeks later, she moved into her new shared apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn, that is operated by Venn, a network of shared homes and spaces in the neighborhood.
