REC.ON– a Sustainable Coliving Project in Andalusia

A REC.On Project is a coliving place in Andalusia, Spain, open to artists, writers, travellers and digital nomads. Based on the upcycled design, it’s an inspirational place for remote work and relaxation in the pristine Spanish countryside.

Paulina and Bart, an artist and an environmental engineer, left their busy careers and hometown of Warsaw, Poland, and moved to Spain to follow their dream. They built an eco-friendly coliving residence and art gallery in the small village of Bolaimi near Velez Rubio in Andalusia. It’s where they spread the values of a good, conscious life in harmony with nature and themselves.

In the 150-year-old rustic and authentic house buildings, an apartment with three rooms for up to 6 people is available, with an additional kitchen, bathroom, toilet and living room. The apartment is equipped with internet and work-friendly areas. The area around the coliving is perfect for hiking or biking. REC.On is an excellent example of sustainability, as they have a permaculture garden with vegetables and herbs (available for guests) and installation for rainwater recovery. They also harvest olives, used to produce their own ecological olive oil. The place is based on an upcycled design, so it inspires environmentally conscious visitors.

A unique place is also known as an ART & ECO hub. For over eight years, the mission of artists Paulina and Bart and their award-winning and much-loved brand REC.ON has been to inspire the creation of art that aims to build a more sustainable future. By designing applied art in the upcycling trend, they broaden the recipient’s awareness, opening them to issues related not only to design but also to sustainable development (especially responsible production and consumption).

We live by our own rules, create our life and want to share it with others. We have a mission to spread the values of a good, conscious life in harmony with nature and ourselves. Upcycling life is a way of life, a happy life.
