The European LiM network enables both the overarching development of common models and their adaptation at local level. The international know-how that the cooperative accumulates through its members and partner organisations creates competence and security for local actors and housing initiatives. In this way, innovative and experimental “niche projects” can also be made possible for smaller cooperatives, which are often occupied with day-to-day business.
LiM sees itself as a growing and “learning” cooperative. As a result, the individual model projects serve as “blueprints” and thus as a basis for future-oriented further development.
Current construction projects are already being planned for selected locations in Germany, Finland and Latvia. The first concrete residential construction project is currently being implemented in the southeastern Berlin district of Treptow-Köpenick (Ewaldstrasse).
