HIGH-PERFORMING SHELTER SOLUTIONS
DESIGNED FOR DIGNITY
THERE ARE NOW 100+ MILLION MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN WORLDWIDE WHO HAVE BEEN FORCED TO FLEE THEIR HOMES.
DESIGN CANNOT SOLVE THIS EPOCHAL PROBLEM, BUT WE BELIEVE THAT IT CAN AT LEAST PROVIDE SOME COMFORT, DIGNITY AND SAFETY TO THOSE AFFECTED.
JOIN THE CAMPAIGN:
One of the biggest challenges within humanitarian operations is shelter, which should be more than just a roof over the head to provide adequate protection for displaced persons. Ideally it needs to be a place where dignity can be restored and forcibly displaced people can feel empowered despite having fled their homes, lost their belongings, livelihoods and sometimes even their loved ones.
ABOUT OUR PROJECT
HANDY TO TRANSPORT
H7 has been designed by humanitarian professionals who understand both the challenges that organisations face everyday in the field. It also takes into account and the key features that they are looking for such as easy transportation of shelters to emergency locations, as well as easy and fast deployment.
AT ITS BEST
H7 is intended as a “substitutive” product that, due to its innovative solutions, will replace outdated, conventional shelters. As a system its intended use is multiple: habitation, clinic, school, office; and its modularity and adaptability mean that it can be configured according to climate and cultural appropriateness.

We are four partners who have strong connections in the humanitarian sector and collectively enjoy a wide network of major players in various fields including humanitarian, academia, aid agencies, business and media.
A world where every person who is not living in their own home (having escaped danger) feels safe, and has a sense of belonging and dignity in their temporary accommodation thanks to H7’s innovative modular construction system.
To help people who may have lost everything feel that they themselves are not lost. Instead, the H7’s shelters will ensure that they are protected, feel secure, and valued, thereby restoring their hope for the future.
As an indispensable, trustworthy partner to INGOs, agencies, national organisations and governments who are seeking to better the lives of all those who need H7 high-performing shelter solutions we wish to foster empowerment, a sense of belonging and esteem.
The world is facing a humanitarian shelter crisis beyond all proportions. We are keen to work with likeminded partners globally to bring about improvements in the living conditions of those who have been forcibly displaced from their homes. We look forward to building our network further in the coming months and years.
