Influencing factors such as demographic change and economic and social developments in the world of work in recent decades have increasingly driven people away from small towns and villages to large conurbations.
Besides, the relocation of production steps abroad means that not only flats and apartment buildings but also an increasing number of large commercial buildings in our rural areas are vacant. Due to changes in the economy, population structure and technical progress, these buildings have increasingly lost their use and thus their raison d’être. These buildings are then often left to decay, and some have been empty for decades.
This valuable building stock from former times decays unused before our eyes. Existing buildings have to be revalued and, with the help of appropriate use, reintegrated into today’s modern society.
