UK: Scape has opened its first property under its new coliving brand, Living by Scape, in Guildford, Surrey.

The property, located less than an hour away from central London is meant as an accommodation for city dwellers, aligning with Scape’s mission to improve the quality of city living for its customers. 

CEO and co-founder of Scape, Tom Ward, said: “Located within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Central London, yet close to the beautiful Surrey countryside, Guildford is the ideal location to launch the first property of our new Living by Scape concept. We want to make living as easy and hassle-free as possible for the resident, whether that’s through inclusive pricing, facilities on their doorstep, or the many added extras we provide.”

The company’s new coliving concept, Living by Scape, is focused on emphasising the importance of communal space, while valuing private space as well. The property contains 113 beds, and units range from standard studios to luxury studios. Each unit is equipped with a private bathroom and a compact kitchen, which includes Dualit appliances and coffee from a local roaster, Chimney Fire Coffee. Rooms come with small details as well, such as a Sonos speaker and a Patch plant. 

Guests also benefit from concierge services, security, maintenance, and weekly cleanings, which are all included in the all-in monthly Living package. 

In its new concept, Scape puts an emphasis on communal spaces, so a plethora of group spaces are available to guests as well. These spaces include a fitness studio, a cinema room, co-working spaces, lounges, and a communal family-style kitchen. 

Additionally, guests can also take advantage of opportunities for grocery deliveries, housekeeping, and personal trainers.  

The space was developed with Stephen Marshall Architects, interior architect Ab Rogers, and interior designer Nicola Harding.

Scape, founded in 2008, now owns 64 properties around the world that are either functional or in development.  

Ward said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to be launching our first Living by Scape in Guildford. All Scape properties are located in and close to urban cities to offer a comfortable and well-designed space that caters to the lives of those that make the city tick.”
