Buildings and multi-functional quarters in the dense city.
A residential complex complete with large common areas and smaller homes at an accessible price with high added value.
Workplaces increasingly overlap with private life and there are no places for spontaneous socialising.
It is possible to re-think new urban real estate offerings with small quality homes and impressive shared services as commercial formulas: places where people can work, meet, read and chat as in the hall of a large hotel; spaces for cooking, listening to music, for health; gyms; laundries; meeting rooms; offices for rent.
A possible solution to increased property and rent/leasing costs; a way for living together with high quality at a reasonable cost.
