Parkhaus / personal project


PARKHAUS is a micro home, designed to fit on the space of former parking spots. As Car Sharing spreads around the world, between eight and 20 cars in city centres get replaced by one single shared car. Free space is a rare resource in big cities and could be used for small houses – temporarily or as a constant place of living in great locations. Parkhaus offers all, that is necessary for everyday life, on a very compact floor plan. The design is aiming to trigger people to live there and enjoy the purism of such a simple yet elegant environment. Parkhaus was a personal four weeks project beside my Master Thesis.
