It may be seen more in our neighbors across the borders than here that some people don’t just wish for a family house with a fenced-in garden any more. They don’t want to be locked up in their own world, to be separated on their property with their troubles, they want to share things though, share and collectively live through certain moments of life while having an option to keep their privacy. They want to live in a city, in the center of everything, but in their own way. At least they are saving space in a city and together with architects trying to exploit the potential of the given lot to be able to respond to a change of situation in time. We have asked ourselves a number of questions that we would like to know the answers to.

Why should man live together with other people and actively use selected common spaces?

What is the difference between life in collective housing and life in a traditional apartment house or one’s own house?

What are the pro and cons of sharing?

What are the advantages and pitfalls of collective planning?

What traps are hidden in the process and construction?

How is it possible to realize this type of development?

Is it or should it be subsidized by the city or state? What should the municipality or state require?

What are the qualities it can bring to the neighborhood?

What dangers does it contain?

Is it possible to consider this type of housing as an investment?

What are the owners’ visions and long-term objectives?
