space-craft Architektur is a planning and research practice specialized in compact and sustainable design solutions for terrestrial and extra-terrestrial environments.

We design minimalist, functional habitats, build sophisticated space solutions, and research the interaction of people, plants, objects, and space in extreme environments. Questions such as: What makes a place worth living in? Who are we designing for? What happens and why? are the ques­tions we ask at the beginning of projects, whether they are theoretical and utopian or very specific. We have extracted design principles from our field work in extreme situations – in the space conditions of astronauts and ruderal plants – and pro­vide input on current issues: Living in tiny spaces and space extensions [Mikrowohnen], living in micro-societies, innovative lifestyles, us­ing resources and improving the quality of life, and integrating technical systems and human interfaces.

What we do 

+ We provide functional, efficient space that takes care of future activities in flexible ways.
+ We create a pleasant and appropriate environment for those using the space.
+ We express the special character of the inhabitants and users  in Architecture.
+ We emphasise the use of high-quality, reliable and sustainable materials and workmanship.
