Work done with Münster School of Design
August 2022

In collaboration with Prof. Felix Beck and Agata Trojanowska

Lerchenfenster is a Mini-house community proposed in Havixbeck, North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany. The word Lerchenfenster (lit. Lark’s Window) refers to the cleared plots of land left in agricultural fields throughout Germany to allow Larks to nest. Our concept translates this concept to create a minimalist living space surrounded by nature and community. The proposal was presented to the Mayor of Havixbeck Jörn Möltgen in August 2022.
