Amsterdam – As one of the four angles exploring the future of spaces during St-W Lab on 21 and 22 February, We Lab asks how design can support collaboration and connection in co-working and co-living. The blend of talks, workshops and exhibits on the topic of shared spaces is completed with Space10’s research on cohabitation with an extensive survey, the results of which will be revealed at St-W Lab.
It is estimated that by 2030 almost 70 percent of the global population will live in urban areas, while almost two billion people will not have access to adequate and affordable housing. Space10 – IKEA’s future-living lab – has collaborated with the New York-based design duo Anton & Irene to launch One Shared House 2030, an online platform to gather information to inform the co-living facility of the future. Designed as an application for a co-living space set to open in 2030, the form asks participants to answer a series of questions regarding their preferences in terms of privacy, management and ownership. Extending questions to house-member characteristic preferences, childcare and pets, the survey aims to draw the clearest image possible of what the future co-living space might look like.
While the project addresses a future situation, the results of the research can potentially be applied to existing issues people experience in communal living spaces presently.
