Construction of a co-living residence to house more than a quarter of young entrepreneurs working in Station F startup campus (13th district of Paris) + revegetation of the heart of the plot.


In June 2019, STATION F opens Flatmates, the biggest co-living place in Europe, to house up to 600 entrepreneurs from all STATION F’s startup programs just 10 minutes away from campus.


There are 100 apartments and 600 rooms. More than just apartments, Flatmates offers a full experience with common spaces, including a café and grocery shop (that are open to public), a gym, a laundromat, a huge lounge (where they will be able to play music, watch films or cook with their friends), and an event space.


All apartments of 100+ m2 are designed for sharing and exchange. All residents are matched with their roommates using the technology developed by Whoomies, a startup in the STATION F’s Founders Program, that uses tags given by STATION F’s entrepreneurs to regroup people that share the same interests. Living room furniture designed by Cutwork is modular and flexible, allowing residents to play with the setup of their apartments for various situations.
