Rethinking the urban house-share.

MINI creates the world’s first MINI LIVING building in Shanghai.

More people than ever are living within a shrinking footprint. With MINI LIVING, MINI is addressing these developments and creating the first co-living project in China. MINI is working with Chinese project developer Nova Property Investment Co. to transform an unused industrial complex in the Jing’An district of Shanghai into a multi-layered co-living initiative made up of apartments, working spaces and cultural/leisure offerings.

 

The MINI LIVING project in Shanghai is based on an innovative co-living concept. In an up-and-coming area of the well-developed Jing'An district in the centre of the city, a cluster of six buildings will be turned into a vibrant urban neighbourhood.

 

MINI LIVING will become a home for singles, sharers and families on short, medium-term and extended tenancies. The design and therefore the character of the apartment interiors is international, modern and clean, and features references to the history of Shanghai. However, living in an apartment that occupies only a small surface area in no way means going without. Anything that doesn’t fit inside the apartments can be accommodated in the adjacent spaces.

 

MINI LIVING offers room to experience community as well. Generously sized lobbies provide an excellent place to just hang out, while exhibition areas and a food market invite a closer look. The available facilities also include gardens, play areas, shops and restaurants, which people living elsewhere in Shanghai will be welcome to access too.

 

MINI LIVING is keen to promote social interaction, not only among the residents themselves but with people from other parts of the city. After all, one of the key aims of MINI LIVING is to bring people together and encourage shared experiences.
