Projects in Hamburg
Protected space for women and children
Hamburg Exhibition Halls
This was our pilot project in Hamburg. From early August to late September 2015, approximately 1.200 refugees have found shelter in the Hamburg’s exhibition halls. Although fences were set up to provide shielding, the space lacks privacy and protected rooms. MORE THAN SHELTERS implemented two DOMOs on site to be used as nursing rooms and a separated, secure space for children.

DOMOs as social spaces
Approximately 3.000 refugees are staying in the accommodation facility Hamburg-Schnackenburgallee. In order to provide housing for everybody, the space now consists of a container village and an additional tent camp – a solution, which has led to conflicts. Starting with four DOMOs, we created much needed social spaces according to principles of social design. We are in close contact with the refugee accommodation operators and conduct needs assessments for the implementation. During 2015 MORE THAN SHELTERS also provided five additional DOMOs to use as social spaces.
