Young professionals are increasingly comfortable sharing their home with up to 545 flatmates.
So-called 'co-living' spaces are being developed in London and elsewhere as a packaged solution to the housing crisis.
As rents for private housing continue to rise, demand for rooms in shared blocks with added benefits such as an in-house gym and spa has soared.
“To speak of the British home today is to speak of unaffordable rent and an acute housing shortage”
One resident at a new co-living space in North-West London told the Guardian: "I love all of the spaces here and the options to socialise and to have a private space that's completely your own."
Residents at The Collective, Old Oak, pay around £250 per week for a small single room with shared facilities.
