Coworking hubs offer a workplace where various professionals from across the workforce can come together to collaborate, be productive and have a sense of community. Coliving is similar to this in that it focuses on building community, but it does so beyond work life.
Coworking hubs are a perfect work environment for solopreneurs, freelancers and remote workers who want to avoid feeling isolated working from home and network with like-minded professionals. Several coworking hubs offer various educational programs, seminars and other events that are great for developing and expanding the knowledge of members.
Coliving spaces offer plenty of amenities and services of coworking hubs, but also provide living facilities for workers, which can be a cost effective housing choice for those living in expensive cities.
Additionally, several coliving spaces come fully furnished, offer short-term leases, host events for members and provide a sense of community.
Despite all its benefits, coliving has its downsides. For one, you are essentially living where you work which can have an adverse effect on your mental health. Furthermore, it is likely that your space will not be able to be customized to feel like your own.
If you are looking to separate your private life from your work life, can afford having your own place and don’t mind commuting, coworking hubs are the ideal choice.
On the other hand, if you are someone who travels frequently and don’t mind living where you work, coliving spaces are a perfect match.
