Modern co-living with a Nordic feel.

Live in a beautiful, fully furnished apartment with awesome people.

All over the world people are moving into cities to live and work. At the same time, we have become more mobile, moving around to follow dreams, opportunities and love.

And yet, the real estate market has not evolved from the days where the majority of people lived and owned a place in the cities they were born in.

Even today, in this easy information world, finding a place to stay in a new city can be a big pain.

LifeX was created with the mission of making it easier to be a global citizen, helping people find a place to stay and build a warm social circle everywhere they need to go.

We see LifeX as the future of urban living.
