A shared home and workspace, where we also share some of our purpose and learnings in life.
For a short workation to escape routine, as a retreat to dig into projects, or as a base.
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 cook with, watch a movie or even learn some reiki… Yet with varied workspaces 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 along with many varied communal areas, 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 from day one as an investor, co-owner, or visit on rental — you do so as a member of our cooperative society. To join us make a pledge, then once we've completed due diligence on the property, you will be invited to apply for our community shares, else join us for the next…?!
With coliving, for your own lifelong use equivalent to one month of an ensuite every year, we're targeting a stake buy-in of around €1,500 (plus monthly expenses). Your saving on co-ownership versus rental at ~€550/month (inclusive) means the cost of shares is recovered after 6 years, giving a saving of €250/month thereafter.
With cohousing you have exclusive use of a 45m2+ studio, at a share cost of €35,000 (excluding fitout and decoration). We're also considering dedicated rooms from €15,000 but 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.
With investment in preferential shares, you gain dividends up to 9% instead of space use. These represent 30% of our capital, providing rental capacity and contributing to our community fund. With their income they may be used to cover your use expenses giving cost-free housing into the future.
Why stay in one place? Get away for a while — make a pledge or stay tuned to visit and rent as a guest.
A choice of private rooms, from large dedicated studios with independent access, to standard rooms all with ensuite showers. There's also a dorm for groups. Plus of course more than 12 different shared spaces throughout the property…
We won't be like a hotel nor premium coliving spaces. We'll help each other keep things clean, and do our own laundry. Our volunteers will however help us with the basics, and if you prefer to be looked after they may offer serviced rooms and mealplans. 👏
All shares and costs will be per-day thus you'll have complete flexibility, monthly equivalents are only shown for simplicity. Our budget includes €150k of deferrable and optional expenditures, plus a cushion, therefore there is a good allowance in case of over runs.Tell me more
A coliving hub offers better 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 way to use 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. 🥳
Location independent almost since birth, I understand the value of both having a base and escaping to new places. 🧭 I am 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 having a small supplementary equity reward if you expect to maintain involvement within the community.
A bunch of us are visiting the property together 18–24th September. You're welcome to join us, just follow the link after you've verified your email. You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime, and the questions page has a pile of other details including the different ways you can participate in the project.
We encourage diversity. In our roles, places we live and people we know. Without judgement. Dynamic ecosystems brim with serendipity.
We support deconcentration. Spending money where it makes a difference, away from the metros. Benefitting alongside our neighbours.
We embrace innovation. Investigating the unfamiliar, creating resilience in ourselves, uncovering opportunities for us all. We won't be left behind.
