This publication provides insight into communal living in 11 European countries, focusing on social concepts, architectural details and funding schemes. Exemplary residential projects from Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Germany are included.
