What's a coliving hub?

🏡

A shared home and workspace, where we can also share some of our purpose and learnings in life.

🛬

For a workation to escape routine, as a retreat to dig into projects, or as a longer-term 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 with workspace to match. At a coliving hub you have great common spaces and friendly faces all crossing paths.

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!?

Learn about coliving at some of our favourites, Sun and Co in Spain, Nine in the Canaries and Playworking in Montenegro. But these are just rentals, we need new choices

Better still, scroll down to make a pledge!

We're creating amazing new spaces, reinvigorating old ones!

Get closer to nature whilst remaining connected to the wider world.

💰

Live affordably, buying into lifelong use of properties as you are able.

🏘

Support stronger ecosystems through regeneration in overlooked places.

🤹‍

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 inclusive of coworking and more! With 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.


Location #1: Agen, France? 🇫🇷

We're currently searching for the right property, this may not be the most exciting area yet the property itself would be amazing. We aim to add more properties in future so we all get choice among 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.)

Seeking balance…

It's not just about having an amazing space to get our work done amongst great people, but also popping out for a break to welcoming towns and villages, recharging in the countryside.

We're running it together—to all have a stake!

phase 1 👍
433 550 pledged €266 450 remaining

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!

Operational costs cover our recurring expenses for utilities, volunteers, and (importantly!) maintenance/renewals.

Capital costs are what we're raising to purchase, renovate and fit-out the property, split between two groups of shareholders. This will be undertaken in multiple phases over several years.

We will also have cohousing providing a dedicated 45m2 studio, around €26,000 (excluding fitout). Please contact Jacob if you might be interested. You can furnish it as you prefer, rent it, even exchange time at other locations as you wish.

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 the rates…

Keep on scrollin' to make a pledge!

Facilities that accommodate all of us…

With a choice of private ensuite rooms, or 'pod' dorms for teams and groups. Plus of course more than a dozen different shared spaces throughout the property…


Interlude

This video shows the annual prune festival in town. Not this lively the rest of the year of course! 😅

Operations

How does it compare?

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.

…and our founder

Jacob Jay jacobjay.com
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 so I'm investing ~7% of the funds.

You can reach out to jacob@hub.house anytime, and the questions page has a pile of other details including the different ways you can participate in the project, such as volunteering. Anyone wishing to make a significant investment alongside me (e.g. for cohousing), is invited to become a cofounder.

Our values… we don't believe in believing too much!
Let's learn from and support each other.

‍🕴

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.

Count me in!

Pledges can be split between different shares at the time of issue. When pledges exceed their allocation (as currently for investment) you will be placed on the waitlist, for the next availability.

I would invest around (optional; min €550 to secure position)
