Building with a group of future homeowners is a phenomenon that has made its way from Germany. We have completed several urban housing projects in the Netherlands within this form of collective building and living. In our experience, by designing and building with a collective, there is a lot of room for innovative building methods, sustainable architecture and highly individual and unique homes. It also strengthens cohesion between the members of the collective and it fosters neighbourhood bonding.
