Hane / Shelter Concept for Rural Areas


Hane is an expandable shelter design that aims to make people feel safer and “at home” in places that have limited access to resources. Its ease of transportation and installation makes it preferable for reducing the costs. Thanks to the batteries in its main structure, it enables the users to use electricity for various purposes by storing the solar energy. Its pre-installation compact structure, storing main furniture and its fast installation aims to reduce the operational costs. The modular structure of Hane allows for the creation of different geometries and enables many different settlements in the camp areas.
