Shelters for Families

Shelters for Extended Families proposes strategically positioning inhabitable roofscapes in the Jerash refugee camp in Jordan as a means of providing communal spaces without compromising currently existing private and service spaces.

Four shelters have been redesigned to form a residential complex for extended families. The interior multi use spaces serve as living and sleeping areas and the extended roof area serves as a family meeting area, children’s play area, cooking space and roof farm.
