Better Shelter

Better Shelter began as a small but innovative design project in 2010 in Hällefors, Sweden, driven by the belief that sustainable design can make a difference in humanitarian efforts.

Through groundbreaking collaboration and strong partnerships with UNHCR and the IKEA Foundation, Better Shelter started to develop ideas and designs for new housing solutions. The ideas were transformed into prototypes, which were tested and further developed with refugees in Ethiopia and Iraq. Better Shelter cooperates closely with its partners, customers and end-users to continuously gather invaluable feedback for future improvements.
