Kollektivt boende - en studie av Majviken, ett modernt livsstilsboende i Göteborg
Cohousing– a study of Majviken, a modern lifestyle resident in Gothenburg
Th is essay is the final piece of my eduacation. The essay contains material that have been produced from a study that have been made in Majviken, Gothenburg, one of many cohousing communitys in Sweden. The special quality this building poses is that is was originally built as a cohousing living but in the past 25 years is has been a housing estate without any form of service function included. During the last year the whole house have been remodeled and a new kind of livingconcept have been created, a lifestyle living with many different kinds of service functions included, hostess, common premises for the residents with things suchs as gym, saunas, movietheater and relaxation areas. The study is about the residents living in Majviken, and how they feel about the new way of living but also how it affect their lives. What do the new living lifestyle stand for? My original intention have also been to observe and make interwievs with the residents to capture their thoughts and in the end have the possibilty to summarize and compare how it was before the redmodeling.
