Hane / Shelter with Solar Energy


Hane is an expandable shelter design that aims to make people easily access to electricity in rural areas while making them feel “at home”. Its ease of transportation and installation makes it preferable comparing with the equivalent products by reducing operational costs. Thanks to the batteries in its main structure, it enables users to use electricity for various purposes. The modular structure of Hane allows many adaptations for different needs, and it enables many different settlement geometries in rural living quarters. With this feature, Hane aims to bring the interactions of people with each other at the optimum level.
