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.
