As millennials continue to migrate to high-priced urban areas, some are choosing to live in co-living spaces: dorm-style residential buildings in which they rent a single room and get access to shared amenities.
In Hong Kong, Dutch architecture firm Concrete has designed a luxury complex for millennials with that co-living model in mind.
Called Skypark, the building opened in March 2017. Residents rent traditional apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, rather than individual rooms. But according to the Skypark designers, their goal was to fill the building with communal spaces, including a swanky rooftop lounge and indoor pool, where residents can get to know their neighbours and escape city life.
Take a look inside the building, where residents pay up to $US3,400 per month.
Its name refers to the building's rooftop garden, called the Lawn, which features greenery and views of the city's skyline. Recycled rainwater is used to water the plants.
Inside, two-bedroom apartments measure 593 square feet and let in ample natural light. There are also studios and one-bedrooms.
Other shared spaces include a clubhouse called the Aurora, which includes an indoor swimming pool, a poolside bar, a library, and a gym on the 28th floor.
'The architect has created a space perfect for urban dwellers, especially for millennials, realising their dream of longing for a serene space where they can escape the hustle in the midst of the bustling city life,' its developers, New World Development, said in a press release. 'The end result is a green clubhouse in the sky and a park high above the city, where people can interact with each other easier than ever.'
