Concept Glossary

Concept selected: Group dwelling

Definition

Dwelling designed to be inhabited by a group of persons subjected to a common authority or scheme that is not based on family ties or specific coexistence schemes. The group dwelling may only partially occupy a building, or more frequently, the entirety of the building.

Notes

It is included both actual group dwellings (convents, barracks, institution, student halls, workers residences, hospitals, prisons, etc.), and hotels, guest houses and similar establishments.
When there are family dwellings in the group establishment that are regularly used for the establishment's managerial, administrative or service personnel, these will be considered family dwellings.
