Bangalore has witnessed a huge influx of population from other cities and towns in the last decade or more due to employment and education opportunities. As part of the Architecture Design studio, fourth-semester students at Acharya's NRV School of Architecture are designing co-living spaces for the young population of Bangalore, acknowledging what the 20+ brands in the market are already providing their clients and how they can better their design for the same. The users may be employees from the IT sector or students of a particular institution. The studio is looking at providing residential facilities for some of the students of the Indo-Asian Academy Group of Institutions. The project is to house around 200 students with amenities and the site is around 1.5 acres.
