The demand for smaller flats suitable for one person is constantly rising. But we still need to have other people around us: family, friends, acquaintances or neighbours support us in our everyday lives, providing a feeling of emotional security and sharing our joys and sorrows. Only by living together can we strengthen social cohesion. At the same time, our needs are changing – and not just because we’re living longer.

How in the future can we reconcile these conflicting needs for privacy and community? Who will be living with whom, for how long and under what circumstances? What will our homes look like in the future? And what resources do we need in this regard?
