What's a coliving hub?

🏡

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

🛬

For a 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 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, renting or buying into lifelong use of properties as you are able.

‍🎪

Be part of a community that respects innovation and independence.

🏘

Support stronger ecosystems through regeneration in 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 accommodations 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.

By doing it collaboratively, we reduce our footprints and enhance the effects.


Our first location? — near Genova, Italy🇮🇹

We've been scouting for the right property and have found one that matches most of our expectations! It's not just about having an amazing space to get our work done amongst great people, yet also recharging in the countryside whilst still being able to catch some culture in welcoming towns.

Facilities that accommodate all of us…

With a choice of microstudios, ensuite and basic rooms, or a 'pod' dorm for teams and groups. Plus of course many different shared spaces throughout the property…

Current status: structural survey in progress

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

Whether you participate as a co-owner, an investor, or simply 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… Why work from one place? Don't get stuck — make a habit of wider horizons!

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 multiple shareholders:

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. If you don't use your time, you can give to a friend, or trade it with other members.

Another way to consider how shares work, is simply as a lifelong discount on the rental rates for your stake, beyond which normal rates apply.

Operations

  • incorporated as a Co‑operative Society in the UK for the mutual benefit of its members
  • fractional co-ownership with community shares, returning their value if you withdraw them*
  • flexible booking with over 30% unallocated advance capacity
  • year-round volunteer staff (with stipends) looking after maintenance, driving and some catering
  • maintenance fund covers costs into the future to limit bad surprises
  • community fund from revenue surplus allows us to invest in good surprises — events and new facilities
  • reduced impact and sustainability♻️ by virtue of being collective
  • may expand as a network of multiple properties exchanging co-owner use

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 too.

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.
