Introduction of the "ARTOL3000 European Business Group" Senior-Founder
and Developer of the ESPADEVIDA model - now also ready for multiplication
My Name is Heinz Günther, I am now belonging to the more active senior generation with my 69 years and compared to the Photo right side from me, about 16 years ago, where I was playing during a stone laying celebration on my Akkordeon in the past exhibition hall of our Spanish office, I now have much less and fully grey, more white hairs. To be true, I think the main reason of this change is not only my age, it is also, because long term business-life on such level of Team and Group responsibility for several companies, not always is such easy. Especially looking back to some years of the more less "sleeping real estate market" in Spain and southern European countries, it was the time for me to prepare the establishment and first project introduction of ESPADEVIDA in Spain, together with long term experienced local business partner.
In this past time, after 2009, when the Spanish and European real estate market was very quiet, I was also operating - due to my experience as EX-Siemens-engineer - with a German team as consulting-engineer for renewable energy-power plant developments and green-energy Investments in Europe.
ARTOL3000 European Business Group
= ARTOf Living-and working together in Europe in the 3rd millennium
ARTOL3000 means a new, future oriented way of living, working and creating business together, for all generations, not only the younger people, which are already now continuously active in their business or companies. This is also an invitation to my senior generation.
> It is an invitation to European wide business co-operations, in case of marketing and realizing modern, future oriented community projects and
> It is an invitation to private people from all over Europe to participate from the activities of such future oriented innovate business-co-operations.
ESPADEVIDA is one of hopefully in the near future much more possibilities and may be other similar solutions, like it is possible with the ESPADEVIDA cohousing PLUS model, to multiply speed, power and the results for all, who are interested to live in future in a Multi Generation or 50+Generation cohousing, coliving or coworking community, independent if in Spain, Germany, Austria or in any other European country.
Due to my own developer activities and experience, future-oriented community projects are in my mind since many years and I already did write a project development book about this type of special estate about 25 years ago, when I did live and work in Mallorca, after later in Andalusia. Here I could see, that people very often did purchase and concentrate only to the Estate as a building and to the local surrounding of buildings and landscape, but not enough to the short and long term social aspects. At these days it was not the time for this, but my intensive marketing researches and the reality of existing community projects at the market, what I explain in more detail further down, did show very clear, now is the time. Now is also the time for coliving & coworking, to cover the Teleworking requirements for innovative international companies and for young people.
In these days there are many discussions and doubts about the EU. For sure - my opinion - any European country and region should also keep his traditions and basic habits and rights and the EU-politician in future must find a way to optimize to cover and consider better the national interest of the individual countries and people. To keep what is good and helpful and what better not should be touched, hopefully the politician and the finance-world will find out.
We should not forget, Europe is not the same like the political EU-organization and we all are Europeans. For an example I feel as a European since I was active as young engineer in London and the Midlands and before this actual EU-construct was existing.
The globalisation in the time of internet cannot be stopped, only hopefully optimized and in these days we can see the negative effects, besides still existing many positive.
So why not concentrating to the positive side of globalisation and using internet for "ONLINE-Business meetings and ONLINE Round Tables for Community Meetings" to create and establish together new little Community Lifestyle Worlds.
I have had since a young man many European friendships and did my work most time all over Europe, starting with 27 years as young engineer in England and I am thankful for this and wish others also to cooperate and find an open European way of living and working together and having interesting private and business friendships.
I think we really cannot longer expect only from the politician people to change our world, if not in future even we all take more responsibility - retired people together with younger Generations - when we expect changes. This also when we are creating or preparing new business-sectors or projects, like ESPADEVIDA cohousing PLUS, coliving or coworking. Together and each one on his level of past experience and contacts we can change the little worlds around us and when it works, others can follow and can be motivated.
During more than 25 years of Real Estate Development experiences ( see via this link ) in northern and southern Europe, I did search and find out interesting new aspects about coming requirements for real estates with community lifestyle character.
This time did influence me at this stage of my business career as Developer, Business consultant and part time also as coach and mentor, to study the beginnings and the actual situation of the worldwide expanding co-housing scenery.
As a little positive aspect of our internet-leaded globalisation, beside other negative effects in these days, I was able to watch via internet many youtube movies and did read various documentations from private engaged project-managers beside several further social aspect researches - partly financed from governments.
The result, after several years of research work, was an answer for private people of all generations how to cover better – and for a wider range of people, the future requirements, independent where they are living at the moment.
As further result this is also an invitation and suggestion to innovative companies from the real estate branch, like builder, architects, estate offices, plot owner and also representatives of large cities, towns and villages.
It is not just an invitation to cooperate in case of ESPADEVIDA. There is enough to do and to improve for all of us and in various aspects of our global expanding business world, to make life in the little world around us more comfortable and save. It is more a general invitation to find may be similar or even further developed solutions and create and build little estate community worlds, for living and sometimes also Teleworking, with more long term lasting live quality.
The aim is, to meet in future a wider range of people with similar dreams - including also people, living at the moment in far distance or even different countries. So I did look for a best possible solution how to multiply this, together with regional estate companies, architects and builders. The result is the ESPADEVIDA-cohousing PLUS model with the ONLINE ROUND TABLE meetings, also like in a later stage for the individual community set-up the ONLINE Neighbourhood Meetings, coordinated during whole planning, building and establishment period from the ESPADEVIDA Team.
In case of most co-housing projects normally an active private person is overtaking all of this long term coordination responsibility, often also the marketing, to find further interested people. That - beside early financial risk involvement - is the main reason why this lifestyle - more based on private engagement - could not expand in the same way like there were people dreaming about to live that way.
Co-housing, or anything similar – except sometimes partly from innovative architects - was up to now in Europe not fully transferred for more speed and power on a business level, where the establishment of the individual community key elements from earliest time still is fully in the hand of the private community group. A solution, where all the rest of the complete real estate building business and expansion marketing, like searching for more interested people, is covered from a team of experienced companies. This ESPADEVIDA-version is called "builder guided" bottom up development.
The ESPADEVIDA community model is based on some ideas of co-housing, but in several cases different or more flexible to cover a wider range of people. co-housing is not such strictly fixed and also has many individual variations.
So at the end still co-housing is co-housing and ESPADEVIDA is cohousing PLUS. This means it can be at some locations very close to co-housing for all residents, but in other cases it can be different, depending on the people and individual situation. Therefore we think this model is a new foundation to invite and involve in future more people like in the past to this modern future-oriented cohousing PLUS lifestyle and to motivate more companies from the real estate branch and cities to be involved.
May be this is a chance, one day in future to sit together in a Coffee-Corner of an ESPADEVIDA Club Lounge, talking and thinking about what little world next to change and not to put energy and lose energy by criticizing others or especially politicians, but just to do something and have fun with other, similar thinking.
May be you are not waiting for something like ESPADEVIDA,
May be ESPADEVIDA is waiting for you
Either to live in future in an ESPADEVIDA home
or to be involved in a regional ESPADEVIDA business-partnership
You are invited
Thank you for your attention
