The CoLivingLab is
- a model for a plug-in co-housing / co-working space
- a living lab to experiment with co-housing / co-working practices
- an incubator for co-housing / co-working projects
The intermediate use project at the site of the Merkurgarten community garden in Zürich-Hottingen combines features of successful collaborative housing, coworking spaces and living labs to realize a pioneering building type.
The building serves as a pilot project for the zero carbon building element as well.
We were invited to discuss the CoLivingLab project at the #ThisIsACo-op – Co-housing Practices/ Inventing prototypes for Athens workshop series at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia.
