The topic of the master’s thesis is how thin can we live? How small can houses be to live there? Are there some limits of the width? Is there a width which gives the best living space? How can built-in-furniture be integrated to get a great interior space?
Built-in-furniture was investigated in the theoretic part of the work. How can we use them and how can they help to support in the interior? The second part of the theoretic work is the analysis of narrow living in Germany, Japan and the Netherlands. The thinnest houses in these countries as well as other examples are shown. How do they deal with the built-in-furniture, how is it used to get the most space?
Within the experimental design, different widths of houses are established and designs for the latter are developed. A newly established typology for furniture helps to make the most out of the limited space.
