SolarCabin is a wonderfully innovative and highly functional eco-friendly refugee shelter, devised by famous designers Bram Zondag of Bureau Zondag and Arjan de Nooijer of dnArchutectuur, that is designed to offer safe, secure and comfortable housing for asylum seekers within the confines of an eco-friendly structure.

This particular refugee shelter is equipped with a big sloping face that is totally covered in solar panels. These solar panels are more than capable of generating enough electricity not just to take care of the electrical and energy needs of the shelter itself, but to also feed back excess energy into the grid. The modular wooden frame construction makes the refugee shelter quick and inexpensive to setup.

Given the refugee crisis sweeping parts of Europe, the SolarCabin stands out as a model of eco-friendly and sustainable emergency housing.
