Living unit

The temporary living unit is designed to be used after different natural disasters when quick and quality response is vital. The folding capacity of the unit enables it to be small in storage and transport but large while in use. It contains all the necessary equipment which through folding provides different uses of living space. The unit tries not to further harm fragile environment, that’s why it produces its own energy, uses renewable materials, saves in water usage and stands on legs in order to reduce the footprint. The small size of the folded unit permits savings in storage and transport to disaster site.
