we’re rebuilding

we’re currently re-developing this website and will be fully back online soon (around mid-March ’21)

WHAT | fri:dom is a participation-based building system, designed to create affordable bio-based housing

WHY | because shelter is an essential human need that should be a foundation rather than a life goal

simple

most fri:dom base frames can generally be constructed within 3-5 days – after which the new owners decide themselves if & at what stage they want to enter the
project

mindful

our vision is to co-create and peacefully co-exist –
we want to encourage sharing, learning from one another and the appreciation of our personal and material environment

affordable

our open-source concept provides the possibility to also build on a smaller budget – as we encourage people to take ownership of the construction of their home and source their own labour & building materials

empowering

because we believe that connecting themselves to the creation of their own home can give people a sense of grounded accomplishment that is often scarce in today’s digitalised world

    faq

    is it possible to incorporate used and second-hand materials in my fri:dom project?

    absolutely! we strongly encourage the use of second-hand materials in order to save money and/or give items a new purpose. 
    we specifically designed our fri:dom building system so that used building materials (like windows or doors) can be easily incorporated into our base frames before they go into production.

    becoming a part the building process is not available to me, is it possible to have a house fully built by you?

    we understand that not everyone will be able to invest time and energy into their house-building project. therefore, we have created a small network of internal and external contractors that can assist with each step in the process – from electrical to interior walls and sanitary. just let us know about your preferred finishing level when you place your order and we can request custom quotes and price indications.
