Many formerly squatted-in buildings emerged into collective ownership and some, like K9, where one of Freifunk’s founders lived, embraced radical principles of common governance. These principles included economic agreements limiting rents to the costs of maintenance and social agreements specifying collective decision-making supported by monthly meetings.

These buildings could have dozens of apartments, and at K9, apartments were inhabited in rotation so that all building residents would have an equal chance to live in the larger or more beautiful spaces.
