Lifeshelter® is a simple, sustainable and well-insulated shelter for rehousing projects around the world. Our award-winning Family Shelter offers a safe and secure shelter resistant to all weather conditions and is complying with the UN standards for recommended minimum living area for a family of 5 people. The Family Shelter is constructed with unique insulating panels that ensure an energy-efficient and healthy indoor environment in all climates. The sturdy construction, sound insulation, and lockable doors offer the families a feeling of safety and privacy.
Lifeshelter is a rehousing solution that will eliminate the use of tent-houses that are often discarded. The solution is based on an innovative patent pending concept that is ideal for rapid temporary rehousing in emergency situations, as well as being repurposed for permanent housing.
The concept inspires housing construction methods that are an alternative to typical corrugated iron-sheeted roof structures that are ubiquitous throughout slums. By integrating local materials such as clay or lime-stone, it is possible to plaster the shelter to have a more permanent and solid structure.
Lifeshelters® are both economically and environmentally attractive as they can be reused for permanent housing.
