Intergenerational Cooperative Residential Centre: cohousing, coliving, coworking
Access to decent housing is one of the main problems of our society. But it is the society itself above the administrations and against the trend of the market that is organized and decides to try new alternatives that help them to have their own home without mortgaging their lives. With the appearance of the new options of renting (the Share Houses, the Couchsurfing, or the Bedroomers) or those of buying, our needs of having a house are given of face with a standard model that does not adjust completely to the new times. New population profiles such as single-parent families, singles or the elderly make up a demand whose response is difficult due to the increasingly reduced purchasing power.

In order to build, we must reflect on the homes we live in today, on whether they respond to the needs and new lifestyles of the 21st century, lifestyles that have changed over time and housing has to adapt flexibly. The house is proposed as a continuous space delimited by two parallel permeable walls. The project studies the new ways of living, understanding architecture as a catalyst of well-being for society. It is characterized by promoting a network of communities, which reinforces and manages intergenerational relations and coexistence. It addresses, from a spatial, constructive and urban point of view, this social reflection.
