  A company that is growing

The AVILA Group was founded in 2001 in Berlin. Today, the company manages more than 4,000 of properties - a portfolio that is as diverse as the people to whom it provides a home. This portfolio is set to expand considerably in the coming years through new constructions and the acquisition of existing properties.

In 2004, the AVILA Group acquired the tradition-rich petruswerk - Katholische Wohnungsbau- und Siedlungsgesellschaft mbH from the diocese of Berlin. Within the group, this housing company is primarily responsible for the segment of attractive yet affordable housing, and also performs the key task of managing the properties of third parties.

As the Group's holding company, AVILA Management & Consulting AG is responsible for the selection, development, and financing of the building projects and acquisitions. The subsidiary companies provide all the services necessary for the implementation. Dr Douglas Fernando is sole Managing Director. The property group focuses on high-quality residential properties (which AVILA establishes in part as owner-occupied properties), as well as on student group housing, sheltered housing, and residential communities for seniors.


Through its work, the AVILA Group creates a bridge between economic success and ethical, social, and charitable commitment. In so doing, it emphasises strategies that do not benefit only the company and its tenants.

In 2008, the AVILA Group acquired KOOP Lebensraum Beteiligungs-AG (today: petruswerk Projektentwicklungs- und Liegenschaften GmbH www.petruswerk.at) and its subsidiaries, AREV Immobilien GmbH and AKTIVBAU GmbH , from a group of Austrian shareholders which included the episcopal St. Severin foundation. This was followed by the acquisition in 2009 of Severin Holding GmbH, along with four companies from the hotel and services sector.
