What is the Insipiration behind chelsea house?
Chelsea House pulls its name from the iconic Chelsea neighborhood of London, which is quite like our Golden Square Mile location.
Built-in 1908, our historic building holds a strong English influence in its Victorian architecture and detailed interior moldings preserved through the redevelopment.
As Canada is part of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth, the “Chelsea” name choice is a logical choice given all these elements. As for “house,” we aim to stay approachable and authentic in our product. We don’t want to be seen as strict parents but rather as like-minded older siblings who will guide you and share our home with you. For all these reasons, we felt the use of the house was much more appropriate than “residence” or “hotel.
What is co-living?
“To co-live means to live together and share primary resources. there may be uncertainty around what the word “co” stands for, though it appears in communal, collaborative, community, connected—you name it. the fact is the “co” stands for at least more than one person. “living” is self-explanatory.” -Gui Perdrix, Author of Art of Co-living
“Co-living is communal living rebranded.” —Irene Pereyra, Founder, Anton & Irene
“Coliving means living in community with the mindset of preferring to share rather than to get.” — Gianpablo, Founder, Eco-spaces
