More Than Shelters
A Home for Refugees
MORE THAN SHELTERS offers innovative architectural and social design concepts for humanitarian needs. Our goal is to create a temporary home for people in distress and to give them the opportunity to help themselves.
To reach that goal, MORE THAN SHELTERS designed a DOMO, a modular, innovative emergency shelter system. DOMOs design takes into account a vast range of geographical features, climate conditions and culture-specific needs of populations affected by emergencies. Like a building kit, the modular shelter system grows with the demands of its users and can be transformed gradually towards a more stable long-term solution. This adjustability makes DOMOs stand out from traditional tents and containers.
It is our strong believe that innovation and improvement in the humanitarian sector can be achieved by including the people affected as main stakeholders, building on their expertise and capacity. Through social design and community engagement activities we enable people to improve their own situation, recreate dignity and generate local innovation for the most appropriate solutions. Following this approach we have and are conducting various humanitarian projects throughout the world.
