hall renovation done (almost)

We have been working on insulation and ecological heating to make the hall fit for year-round use. TRAP reopened  October 1st 2023! In February 2024 we will close for one month for further renovations, such as the sealing of the floor.


The renovation with all the necessary improvements (see above) is being financed foremostly with direct personal loans. This is a micro-credit scheme with private individuals lending us 500€ or more. This makes TRAP independent from banks and horrendous interest rates (which would increase rent in the comming years). In turn, direct personal loans provide an attractive opportunity for the loaners, corresponding with the habiTAT‘s guiding principle:

»Better backed by a thousand friends than have a bank breathe down your neck!«
