Today, more than half the world’s population lives in cities. The century has witnessed a dramatic population shift from rural to urban to experience the growth dynamism of the world’s metropolises. However, this ‘growth’ is chewing the space and adding a ‘weight’ to the functioning of the cities. The housing stock isn’t growing as fast as their migration and hence there is a resurgence of co-living.

Co-living is becoming a housing model that allows anyone from millennials, young professionals, single women, digital nomads, or individuals relocating to frame their lifestyles with people sharing a common thread. It is the intentional community participating in an increasingly shared economy and the affordability of a convenient housing solution. Co-living is also touted as one of the solutions to the environmental problems.

California is the global hub and convergence point of a large number of entrepreneurs, technocrats and creative minds. With growing urbanization, immigration and demographics, there’s a shortage of affordable houses in California. Archasm invites architecture students and professionals to design an aspirational self-sufficient ‘Co-living Housing in California’ that facilitates and enhances the experience of community living.
