Co-living housing models are rapidly growing in popularity. KTGY is now expanding Co-Dwell, its co-living program, in response to the increasing popularity and demand for more affordable living spaces. Co-Dwell complexes are a collection of micro-units with shared amenities and common spaces. Individual units have small kitchens and living areas with as many as four bedrooms. The concept is meant to provide both better affordability and quality of life.

“The housing affordability crisis in America is a major issue on our minds as residential architects,” Aimee Ho, a senior designer at KTGY. “The amount of affordable housing needed cannot be built fast enough, so the R+D Studio wanted to explore how building design and the way people live could create an attainable housing model to address this national crisis.”
