Madrid is experiencing an evolution in housing demand, with an inclination towards temporary housing alternatives such as coliving and cohousing. These modalities, which emphasise the combination of private spaces and large common areas, are increasingly being adopted by a new generation of residents in search of flexibility and connectivity.
In this scenario, Node, a company specialising in this sector, has announced the opening of two new centres in Madrid: Node Hub Alcobendas and Node Hub Carabanchel. These projects join the existing ones in Barcelona, boosting its portfolio of 504 units to a target of 5,000 by 2024 and 2025.
Node Hub Alcobendas stands out for its size and strategic importance. Located in a 21-storey building, this centre is one of the largest in Madrid. Designed for professionals, teleworkers and entrepreneurs, it offers almost 900 accommodation options, from private studios to four-bedroom flats. This hub also has a variety of services and spaces such as sports areas, swimming pools, and coworking areas. In addition, the building has been constructed with a focus on sustainability.
On the other hand, Node Hub Carabanchel, located in an area undergoing transformation, offers more than 1,000 beds in studios and flats. The centre is aimed at artists, creatives and young people, and offers amenities such as a swimming pool, gym and outdoor spaces. Both centres include accessible accommodation options for people with disabilities.
Node also introduces its Creators Residency Program and collaborates with the Lavender app to enhance the coliving experience. This programme offers residents the opportunity to influence community events and receive additional benefits, while the Lavender app facilitates the management of residential needs.
