Actually, co-living concept isn’t brand new idea. It became popular in 2013 in expensive locations. Aspiring nomads aimed to cut the expenses living together in shared houses. Nowadays, entrepreneurs don’t share houses to save few bucks, but they prefer to be surrounded with inspiring community of other remote workers.
