As more and more of us work and live in increasingly flexible ways, we’ll need a more adaptable form of housing. New Eelam is developing a global roaming subscription for homes. Our aim is to make mobility a way of life.
New Eelam’s flexible subscription replaces your rent, making it easy for you to move freely between connected smart homes around the world. Just tell our app where you want to go next and your private apartment will be ready for you when you arrive.
The way that housing works hasn’t kept up with the reality of how we might live. Our homes have tied us to living in one place even though we can connect with friends and colleagues all over the world. But it need not be this way. Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to be wealthy to have multiple homes around the world?
New Eelam is developing next-generation housing that can be accessed flexibly. We want to help democratize global mobility, so that more and more people can make the whole world their home.
PEOPLE BETWEEN PLACES
Historically, people living between places and across cultures have been responsible for flows of ideas and inventions. New Eelam is developing housing for people to be connected to multiple communities and contribute across multiple cities.
As populations grow, we at New Eelam think that urbanization can become a force for good in the world. Connected cities and increasingly decarbonized transportation are bringing together new ideas and enabling collaboration. We believe that the way in which cities develop is important to everyone everywhere – not just to those who live in them – and we want to build stronger, more resilient and adaptable communities that are connected to each other around the world as much as to their own specific geographies.
Imagine the whole world
could be your home…
Flexible housing is not for everyone. Many people will choose their record collection and DVDs over streaming music and movies; for some, no amount of e-books will compare to their bookshelf; and car sharing will never give them the joy of their own wheels. And that’s fine. But for those who value the freedom of mobility over the accumulation of things, New Eelam aims to make global living more accessible than ever before.
We believe that a greater wealth of experiences can be possible through owning less and doing more. So we’re rethinking how housing can work for a future in which more and more people could value relationships over possessions and express themselves by what they share in, rather than by what they own.
New Eelam has brought together specialists from the fields of technology, real estate, architecture, art, finance, and design to transform how housing works. We’re dedicated to reimagining the future of our cities and how we might live in them. Stay tuned for updates.
