New Coliving spaces of 2018

Last year I wrote an article on New Coliving spaces of 2017, and it is only fair that I do that this year too. As this new era of living and working together develops, we are seeing some brilliant ideas and destinations added to the mix.

I am here to highlight some of the new Coliving spaces that I am absolutely stoked to try out for myself.

Here is my take on the best coliving spaces of 2018:

If you are someone like me, then you dream about seeing those Northern lights and enjoying the white nights in Norway during summer. Well, now you have a coliving space that let’s you gaze at the stars while being in the midst of a community of like-minded people. From surfing to skiing, the Lofoten Islands is a beauty to behold.

With 3 locations in San Diego, this fast growing space welcomes Entrepreneurs from all over the world. Each of the “Entrepreneur houses” has its personal chef and a weekly mastermind that will trigger that Einstein in your brain.

Jakarta is often a stop for many remote workers heading to Bali. Co.Haus has curated a space for the innovators and the change-makers among you. Their spaces are gorgeously designed with a perfect touch of nature. If that’s not enough, add a swimming pool and a gym to it.

4. Bed-Stuy House — Outpost Club

A two story, 4000 sqft loft, is probably one of the only places you can colive with digital nomads/entrepreneurs in Texas. It has one of the fastest internet speeds I have ever come across and it is fully equipped with conference rooms, event spaces and a coworking area. I wonder what their “Bend and Brew” is all about…

Conclusion

Another great round-up of coliving spaces around the world. I envision coliving spaces to become a norm in the next 5 years, meaning, wherever you travel, coliving is matched with options like hotels, hostels, airbnb etc.

Let me know what you think about these spaces and if you’ve heard of a new coliving space that must be added to the list, give me a shout-out. Oh and hold down 👏 to show your support.
