Meeting the person who builds your four walls makes living there an entirely different experience.
Freiburg, Germany (PRWEB) August 09, 2016
Sustainable architectural firm Frey Architekten has started a soup kitchen initiative at their Heidelberg Village construction site to unite both construction workers and the residents who will be dwelling in the complex they are building. Every week the firm offers a free lunch to bring both worker and home dweller closer together.
According to sustainable architect Wolfgang Frey’s Five-Finger-Principle, sustainability is a holistic concept that includes five different aspects: ecology, affordability, integration, innovation and profitability. It is not just about building more energy-efficient housing, but about building a home environment to last a lifetime.
“Our goal is to build a strong community identity by inviting potential residents to our weekly soup kitchen to meet the construction workers and learn more about the people behind the scenes,” says Wolfgang Frey. “Through consistent interaction the entire complex will bond over food and friendship.”
By exposing potential residents to the people developing the property, Frey Architekten seeks to develop a sense of ownership and responsibility in the home dwellers while manifesting relationships among residents and the workers themselves to serve as the foundation of a living, long-lasting community.
This concept has shown great success during the construction phase of other properties around Germany developed by the Frey Group, a vibrant network of over 30 experts in the construction industry, under which the sustainable architectural firm Frey Architekten is managed.
The initiative will continue weekly until the Heidelberg Village project is completed in late 2017.
The Frey Group, which includes the project and property development company, Freie Liegenschaftsverwaltung GmbH, the leasing company pro scholare GmbH, and Frey Architekten, is a part of a vibrant network of around 30 employees with many years of experience and expertise in the construction industry. The Frey Group pursues sustainable urban development and considers the social and environmental aspects in every one of its projects. http://www.freyarchitekten.com
