Joining the Community

The Obenaus community is a voluntary space. You can join us and leave again as it fits your life and plans. As the commitments for you here become more lasting the longer you want to stay, we see three various stages of engagement. As a community member, be it for a limited or unlimited period, you have a full co-decision right and voice in shaping the day-to-day life of Obenaus.

Visiting resident

Visits are arranged on an individual basis, so we can both agree on our priorities for each other, the dates and all other conditions. Sometimes we have a few themes defined soo you can meet other residents who share your interest in that topic.


You can move in and become a more permanent community member. We will for such cases see how your life plans and those of the other permanent members come together. If your stay is for a longer horizon, we’ll encourage you to become a co-owner than as well.


Following a resident period you can become a co-owner and shape Obenaus for the longer run. You have a right to stay as long as it fits you. That’s why the other owners will have to accept you and agree to your joining them.
We suggest to invest a share of at least 50.000 € backing up the space you live in. With that investment, you’re also taking part in the overall investment decisions around Obenaus. If this amount of cash is not in your hands, we can agree for a savings plan to build the investment up over time.
