Shelter bench


Temporary public architecture for migrant workers in Gulf

Shelter Bench is a resting place for workers in industrial areas. The bench provides a structure designed for socialising, rest and cover from sun and rain. Industrial and construction workers around the UAE currently spend their breaks sitting on sidewalks and using vehicles and trees for shade. The Shelter Bench provides a vital improvement: the shape of the bench recreates the informal style of the current conditions, while attaching a convenient bike stand and storage compartments. Shelter Bench provides a new urban architecture that reinforces the importance of social and comforting breaks for industrial workers.
