We take a look at how co-working and freelancers have always been a natural fit.
The benefits of a stable, work space (wi-fi always included) that can be rented and used on a flexible and temporary basis have long been known to freelancers who have essentially driven the demand for coworking spaces.
But this demand is extending beyond a need for flexible working spaces and into a demand for flexible living spaces too. This evolution of co-living and coworking is the perfect combination for freelancers looking to bring all of the benefits coworking brings, into how they live.

Coworking, co-living spaces are perfect for freelancers, in much the same way coworking spaces are, and for the following reasons:
Flexible rental periods
From 3 months, 6 months or longer- don’t be tired down by long and complicated rental contracts, don’t be tired to a particular flat or location if you don't need to be. Downsize, upsize, move to another neighbourhood-whatever you need.
Across a variety of neighbourhoods- from the very heart of the centre of the city, to the more leafy rural outer areas. Choose where you want to live according to where you need to be today, not several months down the line. A particular neighbourhood not for you right now? So move, there are plenty of more great co-living locations to choose from.

Community, community, community
Like-minded people working and living together in the same spaces create the perfect blend of creativity, networking and community. Co-living, coworking spaces are hives of innovation and creativity that are perfect work spaces and environment for freelancers.
Hassle-free move in
Fully-furnished living and working spaces, bedding and kitchen cutlery all included too, and of course that all important Wi-Fi too. Much like in a coworking space, you simply turn up and work, so co-living spaces offer the same experience when it comes to living.
Work where you live and live where you work
This doesn’t have to be a bad thing. No commute. The office right downstairs. You get to get out of bed later in the morning, when your office is in the same building as your flat and you can be way more flexible with how you work as well.
For freelancers flexibility and a like-minded community are key to a positive working and living experience.
Coworking, co-living spaces offer just that.
