Since the beginning of life on earth, humans have lived in clusters, tribes & clans. And the nuclear family concept emerged a hundred years after. But with the advent of new opportunities, the young, now termed as the millennials, are moving to new places more than ever before. They are purpose-driven, talented, creative & ambitious. But what they constantly feel the lack of is a sense of belonging, in the new city, new country or a new continent. We stay in a super-disconnected city where there are tons & tons of people but at the end of the day it feels like being alone in the crowd. A recent Wired magazine article pointed out that “among the young, the "loneliness epidemic" has gone viral: nearly 60 per cent of 18- to-34-year-olds told the Mental Health Foundation they felt lonely often or sometimes.”
Here enters Co-living: A concept focused on fostering a sense of community, of living together, of sharing space, moments, resources, thoughts and dreams with like-minded people and becoming a better version of yourself while being a part of something bigger.
Co-living is making a comeback with a contemporary twist to suit this era. It’s a modern way of living better together. You feel an instant sense of connection and belonging when you share a space with inspiring & creative people, just like you. You discover your latent potential and find a new perspective about things around you. It’s a refreshing experience while being the new way of life - living away from family, not away from community.
We, at Abode, are aiming to foster this very community living culture. While you have your own space and privacy inside your room, the whole world of community living awaits once you open the door and walk out of your room. Shared recreational spaces, kitchen & work zones enable our residents to know each other, get inspired, create something together & respect individuality while acknowledging the community.
What I love most about Abode is the interesting backgrounds that people here come from. With everything ranging from dance therapists to doctors to photographers adding to the most amazing mix of characters, you're sure to never be bored for a second. - Resident at Nestor.
Here’s to redefining the way millennials live. And here’s to a world where living, being inspired, living together and sharing space, moments & dreams doesn’t have to take a back seat :)
