Be you an entrepreneur, remote worker, digital nomad, a creative—or anything else!
By embracing diversity and serendipity we create vitality in our lives. You've got your own independent lifestyle and need a house to match. At a coliving hub you have great common spaces and friendly faces crossing paths doing all sorts of stuff.
There's always folks to whip up a soufflé with, watch a movie or even learn some reiki… Yet with varied spaces you're always productive, to do your best work, collaborate with our community, support member's ventures or even start your own!?
Get closer to nature whilst remaining connected to the wider world.
Live affordably, buying into lifelong use of properties as you are able.
Be part of a community that respects innovation and independence.
Support stronger ecosystems with regeneration of overlooked places.
Benefit from shared facilities (vehicles, cinema, tools, ice-cream maker, …).
Connect, learn, and take advantage of serendipitous opportunities.
Our purpose as a member owned co‑operative is providing affordable co‑ownership and rental, giving us use of private accommodation plus many varied communal spaces, across multiple locations.
As participants in a dynamic ecosystem we share its opportunities whilst generating rental revenue as a social enterprise — reinvesting in hosting workshops, talks, activities and even festivals, enriching not just ourselves, but the wider community.
The regeneration of smaller towns and rural areas not only opens up affordable property for us, yet helps to restore life around. By doing it collaboratively, we reduce our footprints and enhance the effects.
We'll add more properties in future so we all get choice amongst varied locations. Don't worry about languages, there'll always be folks around to help. 🙆♂️ (If you're not an EU citizen you'll need a visa, but we plan to add places outside the EU.)
It's not just about having an amazing space to get our work done, but also popping out for a break to welcoming towns and villages, escaping into a natural park and great wilderness, with hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, kayaking, wild swimming, skiing, and more(!) within reach.
Whether you participate as a co-owner, an investor, or visit on rental — you do so as a member of our cooperative society. To join us make a pledge then once we've agreed our plans, you'll be invited to apply for our community shares, else join us for the next… Why stay in one place? Make a habit to get away for a while!
Capital costs are what we're raising to cover our acquisition, renovation and fit-out for the property, split between two groups of shareholders. This will be undertaken in multiple phases over several years. 😅
Operational costs cover our recurring expenses for utilities, volunteers, maintenance and renewals.
Running the project together, we can all make proposals for use of our community fund, always voting to make it happen.
We may also have cohousing giving exclusive rights to a 55m2 studio, at a share cost of €34,000 (excluding fitout and decoration) and potentially dedicated rooms from €15,000. Please contact Jacob if you might be interested. You're free to rent it, keep it for your own use, or exchange time at other locations as you wish. It's an opportunity to downsize without loosing your own place nor your own style.
A choice of private rooms, from large dedicated studios to standard rooms all with ensuite showers. There's also 'pod' dorms for teams and groups. Plus of course more than a dozen different shared spaces throughout the property…
We're currently performing due diligence on our candidate properties, you can review the full property report for our lead candidate and signup for email updates.
If you stay longer than your share or have none, you pay the standard rental rates. Shares are flexible, if you take a different type of room your time is adjusted (about one third less time in a premium room, or twice as long in a pod dorm).
Another way to consider how shares work, is simply as a lifelong discount on the rental rates for your share, beyond which normal rates apply.Show me
A coliving hub offers many collective facilities, more flexibility and a dynamic community — versus sharing, renting or buying your own apartment. If you do not need these and can find community and workspace in other ways, then this kind of environment may not be a good match for you.Tell me more
It's easy to rent cheap private apartments for a few months or more in better locations, such as the Canaries, or to buy in Bulgaria. (One day we'll add a properties there!) If you're happy working from cafés or the apartment, the cost is comparable, but if you add a coworking membership the cost will be higher, however you've your own apartment and potentially a better location.
The ideal use for Hub House is as an annual retreat or base that you come back to between travels. Once we've more locations it'll be great for full time use too. 🥳
Jacob Jay created the first ever hub offering coliving with open-access coworking, in Delhi, India, and operated for four years from 2010, when the lease price was hiked, spawning the idea of co-ownership.
Location independent almost since birth(!) I understand the value of both having a base and escaping to new places. I'm investing ~7% of the total funds, and anyone wishing to make a significant investment alongside me (e.g. for a cohousing unit), is invited to become a cofounder.
We encourage diversity. In our roles, places we live and people we know. Without judgement. Dynamic ecosystems brim with serendipity.
We enable deconcentration. Spending money where it makes a difference, away from big metros. Benefitting alongside our neighbours.
We embrace dynamism. Investigating the unfamiliar, creating resilience in ourselves, uncovering opportunities for all. We won't be left behind.
