Residency for journeymen

Project proposal


The project is a proposal for a housing unit and temporary living space for journeymen, that are keeping the tradition of the so-called “auf die walz gehen“ in Germany. During their journey, these craftsmen are looking for a place to work and stay, which is often a place that the company for which they work is financing. But, as they are all taking part in different projects and are highly involved in smaller communities they need a place where they can stay for a longer period. The proposal for the project includes an inner courtyard and two housing units with a bed, a toilet and a small kitchen. Built with bricks this "refugium" can be seen as a prototype for this particular housing typology.
