Co-living is growing in popularity in major cities like Bangalore , where increasing housing prices are forcing the younger working generation to look at new and adaptive ways to rent in the city .the project has been designed with the idea of providing living units that are designed within small footprints, with surrounding flexible communal spaces to accommodate social activities needing larger areas. The site is located near MG road towards the centre of Bangalore making it prime location for the younger crowd. To make the most out of its location and high real-estate value, our motive was to not compromise on communal spaces but at the same time maximize accommodation. Residential spaces in the building were divided for single, double and triple sharing rooms, with a dormitory on the terrace. A shaded terrace garden facing the road creates a shared space for the residents. As the longer side of the plot faces the road, it was imperative to pay keen attention to the PHE pipes passing along the front façade. As such, the canvas was divided into 4 blocks further detailed to conceal the building services within the design. Overall façade employs a mix of metal, copper panels, exposed concrete and 3d tiling to create an asymmetrically balanced view. Y-living seeks to create a better temporary living environment while encouraging communal bonding.
