Appreciation towards AIM for providing the following description:


An evolution in co-living that creates flexible shared and private spaces.We have transformed an old hotel in Shanghai’s West Bund into a new co-living concept for sharing space and building community in a detached big city.

The 66-strong housing project provides compact and customizable homes to people looking for a cooperative living model.

▼入口区域,entrance area

▼从外部望向大厅,view to the lobby from outside

▼公共空间,public area


Each room provides the tenant with a private sanctuary and all the essentials, including an ensuite bathroom, a desk for studying and a kitchenette for simple food preparation.

▼公寓内部,apartment interior view


Dutch doors create a partial boundary between the private and public domain, a gentle signal to neighbors that friendly interruptions are welcome.

▼半开放的“马厩门”设计,a semi-opened room door

公寓楼内还设有一系列公共空间,如厨房、阅览室、会议室、影视厅和户外庭院等, AIM希望借此来重建社区。

Outside of the private rooms, shared functional areas on every floor are designed to promote community-building. These include kitchens, a library, living room, lounges, TV room and outdoor terrace.


▼公共功能空间,the shared functional space


Shared kitchens allow for communal cooking and large dining tables play host to group meals and provide space for entertaining.

Living rooms are situated around the central staircases to create a natural point of entry as residents pass through these inviting little hubs on their way to their rooms.

▼空间细部,detailed views



Lounges create opportunities to connect and relax while larger spaces can be used for events and festivities. At the base of the building are a number of shops, restaurants and bars as well as a full gym.

▼休闲区域,lounge area


A botanical theme in the design language references the nearby botanical garden, a green space in the city that is also shared amongst its many urban inhabitants. As the building rises, its black facade forms a backdrop to the tall trees out front. French balconies allow the residents to experience life amongst the leaves. On the ground floor, a tiled facade features botanical patterns that are carried throughout the interior of the building in the colors, upholstery, carpets and cushions.

Cohost is a living community that will flourish over time, like a garden.
