Around the world a growing need for refugee housing has seen the 'Hex House' be developed by Architects for Society as a way to help ease the burden on host countries.
Crafted with sustainability and low-cost parameters in place, the 'Hex House' is designed to be easily and rapidly deployed to prevent slums from forming. The modular aesthetic of the housing consists of steel tubes at the base and insulated metal for the walls. The homes draw influence from traditional homes and mobile homes to merge concepts for space-savings and comfort into one.
Capable of being grouped into different mini family units or communities, the 'Hex House' refugee housing design identifies how we can solve the housing crisis for displaced peoples.
