About Commune

Commune is the world’s first coliving dedicated to single-parent families. With one in four families being single-parent in France, our startup offers a turnkey housing and services solution designed as true living and meeting places to make life easier for these parents and their children. Thanks to this pragmatic solution, Commune aims to limit the social, professional and financial impact that usually arises from a separation. While the first residences are expected to open in the autumn of 2023, the startup plans to expand its concept internationally and open 500 residences within 10 years.

Why coliving appeals to users and investors

This type of housing, which has recently appeared, is expected to create nearly 16,000 new homes by 2025. Much more than a passing fad, coliving is becoming permanent in the real estate landscape. In fact, Mipim is now devoting an international summit to this type of housing that combines the codes of hotels, flatsharing and coworking, the Co-Liv Summit, which is being held the day before the show opens.
