How do we build the best spaces for children, mothers, young adults and disabled people in crisis areas?
The DOMO Habitat System is the first fully modular shelter design concept for the humanitarian context. We recognized that we can not have a “one size fits all” approach if we want a shelter to adapt to various cultural and individual needs to help better families on the flight. This train of thought led us to create a comprehensive system that can be easily transported and assembled while still promoting a focus on comfort and customizability. The DOMO gives people the opportunity to be part of the design of the structure, providing relief organizations and families with the chance to create an environment that best suits their desires.
The DOMO is not a singular tent, it is one component in an adaptable system. It comes in a variation of materials and sizes. Entering the DOMO is unlike anything you’ve experienced before. You walk in expecting to feel as though you are in a tent, instead you feel as if you’ve walked into a home. The space conveys the boundless potential contained within the structure. It can become whatever you want it to be.
The DOMO System has been tested and implemented in Nepal, Greece, Lesbos, Haiti, Turkey and Iraq being used as accommodations, child-friendly spaces, schools, nurseries, field hospitals or community centers.
