Worldwide displacement and refugee movements hit an all-time high in 2016 with 60 million people forced to leave their homes and seek asylum elsewhere. In Germany in particular, asylum claims reached a historic high with 442,000 first applications in 2015 – a 155% increase over the year before. Just at a time when Germany is facing its first home-made housing crisis since the re-unification, the influx of refugees puts authorities under further pressure.

Heimat2

GRAFT co-founded Heimat2 with partners Comterra Care, Lepi Ventures, Bernstein Group and H.W. Pausch to provide dignified housing solutions for refugees in Germany that combine short- and long-term solutions from typical disaster relief programs.

The objective is to build model residential villages that are socially inclusive and provide living environments of the best possible standard. Apart from long-term tasks, the immediate goal is to provide shelter and the perspective of a more permanent living situation

Looking at the urgent challenge, Heimat2 reacts with fast and present solutions for accommodation within modular construction systems - with the best possible conditions for the inhabitants and residents.

Heimat2 Drawing

In close collaboration with well-known charity organizations, Heimat2 invented a holistic concept that offers excellent operators, communication on site and the opportunity to flexibly enlarge the residential villages or later re-use them for another purpose.
