Life has a lot to offer and Sven, the former resident of Domeq, knows this very well. He came to the Czech Republic from Germany, where he was born and raised. His main reason to move to Brno was to gain new experiences and see what kind of a person he’s become with all the adventures he has been through in the past 32 years.
Domeq has been through quite a journey since the beginning of the year. Together we have managed the COVID situation well. Three disinfections of the whole facility later, Domeq is pretty much full and occupied by long-term tenants. Today, seven months after the beginning of the year, we bring you a summary of this very productive year so far.

Last week, I was out with my friends. When we decided to go home, it was getting pretty late, so my friends were thinking about which night bus to take. I walked them to the bus station, and they asked me which night bus I am taking. I responded by saying: “None, I am walking back home.” This response got me a lot of weirded-out looks.
Some of us go abroad for studying, working or perhaps when following our life partner to their homeland. Some of us like to travel far and long to discover unfamiliar corners of the world. Reasons for leaving a home country are many but they all have connecting elements, not all of them necessarily being pleasant and commonly talked about – cultural shock, loneliness, even depression can hit once you root yourself out of the familiar land and try to plant yourself in a new geographical and cultural environment.
Mould is a fungus and, as typical in these tiny organisms, you may observe it growing in humid corners despite your careful regular cleaning and maintenance of your house. As you might already know, it can cause a lot of damage to the walls and furniture, but worse than that, it can cause breathing and skin problems if you are in contact with it regularly. For these reasons, you should be mindful and try to prevent mould appearing in your house in the first place.
Everyone probably has some ideas about their perfect home, but regardless of our individual demands and requirements, we all may have one thing in common: We want our home to have a soul; something interesting that would tell us its story as soon as we open the door. And that is exactly what Domeq is about. In this article, you’ll read what its coordinator Veronika Svobodová told us about it and why it is such a cool place for living.
