Encouraging shared ownership
Communities of committed residents, who look after each other and their living environment, form the basis for a well-functioning city. With attention to facilitating joint use and staging encounters, in generous and carefully designed collective space, Mei aims to contribute to the emergence of close-knit communities.
We encourage ownership by giving residents a say in their living environment and, where possible, involving them early in the design process. Programming also plays a role in strengthening contact between residents, users and local residents. The need to consume more consciously offers opportunities for shared use. By connecting with local initiatives, new communities are embedded in the existing ones.
