What is “Co-Living” Architecture? Ft. Node Living and David Drews

What is "Co-Living" Architecture? Ft. Node Living and David Drews

In the last few years, I’ve heard more and more about “Co-Working”, especially since the pandemic where many companies are downsizing their offices for flexible working environments.

On the other hand, I have started to see the term “Co-Living” pop up more and more.

Is this some new fun, glamorous way of living that is very different from the student halls I used to live in many years ago? It sounds like it!

Fortunately, to find out precisely what “Co-Living” design looks like, I am joined by David Drews, who is Design Director of Node Living, a Coliving Operator & Developer, as well as heading up their internal Node Design Studio.

Join us for an informal conversation about what a Node project looks like but also learn what it’s like to relocate for the job (as David left London to join their office in Barcelona)
