What is next in living?

Living space is shrinking in urban spaces. because of the increase of people that are living there. more people are living alone. apartments are becoming smaller and smaller, like 8m2 where people stay temporary and leave their belongings behind. It is redefining the definition of what is a home and how permanent is the idea of home?

 

Flexible and temporary

Micro living, finding solutions, empty places.

 The Shed Project by Loewe Guardians provides below-market housing in vacant buildings. The service matches property owners of vacant buildings with young creatives who are hunting for space to live. The deal is that if you move in, you’re essentially the site’s caretaker.

Fluid space

The idea of home is becoming more fluid, we use our home differently. The home is becoming a productive space. Not only as a retreat, but to work in or rent out. There are no traditional categories like a living room anymore. You eat everywhere. 6% of the people work in the bathroom.

Younger people (under 20) have an extended idea of home. The idea of home is less fixed and is expanding into the city.Home is where you feel secure, where you meet friends. That can be at the square or in the park. Young people, on average they move 19 times in their lives, a nomadic behavior and lifestyle.
