Aparthotel brand Adagio has launched a new concept “designed for the accommodation of larger groups travelling together”.

The Coliving by Adagio concept offers a self-contained flat with four to six rooms, accommodating up to 12 people.

Each room has its own bathroom, and there is a separate area within each flat “that can be used as a shared multifunctional space” – off of which branches the privates spaces in a star shape.

Adagio says that the Coliving concept was designed in partnership with Numero 111, a design studio “known for its inspiring concepts for private home ownership, rental flats as well as for the hotel industry”.

The group said that the Coliving communal areas “are designed to be hybrid and not limited to a specific function”, inspired by The Circle communal spaces in Aparthotel Adagio properties.

Elements include a kitchen with a bar table which transforms into a collective work area with power sockets, and a living room which can be used for presentations via a larger monitor.

The first Coliving flat is currently being built within the Aparthotel Adagio Paris Bercy, and is expected to open this autumn, with the group “hoping to rollout the concept across its international portfolio soon after”.

A joint venture between Accor and the Pierre and Vacances Center Parcs Group, Adagio recently opened its long-awaited London Stratford property, marking the sixth UK aparthotel for the brand.

The brand is targeting 200 aparthotels worldwide by 2024.
