For the Rome Collective Living Challenge, we were tasked with designing a concept for affordable housing in Rome that
fits the ideals of a co-living lifestyle. and experimenting with the concept of low-income housing as a collective. Rather
than rolling out hundreds of new tiny apartments in Rome’s city centre. This collective living could offer something
more than just an affordable place to live; a community to live in within the hustle and bustle of It aly’s capital.
As major cities are becoming less affordable, they are also becoming more lonely, with individuals feeling more isolated
and separated from each other than ever. Communities are created through intentional architecture which creates
shared spaces in which residents interact in numerous different ways, from sharing meals and socialising to sharing the
burden of child care and co-working space as well.
