Designed to address pressing global challenges, such as disaster relief scenarios and refugee camps, Village in a Box brings forth a pragmatic approach to meeting urgent housing needs. By leveraging recycled plastic, QUICKBLOCK prioritizes environmental sustainability without compromising on quality or durability.

By embracing this innovative solution, disaster management agencies, NGOs, relief organisations, and governments can efficiently and rapidly establish safe, sustainable communities for those in need.

The modular design of QUICKBLOCK allows for the installation of essential facilities such as plumbing, sanitation, and electricity, tailored to the specific needs of the inhabitants. This customizable approach ensures that the housing units can be adapted to the unique requirements of different communities.


The requirement for better temporary shelter is undeniable. QUICKBLOCK can be deployed in an emergency scenario at the same speed as tents, however it offers more safety and security from day one. Beyond the emergency scenario, QUICKBLOCK housing has the ability to transition into more semi-permanent and permanent homes over time.

The adaptability and versatility of “Village in a Box” and the QUICKBLOCK platform allows for flexible transition from temporary housing to semi-permanent or permanent dwellings, catering to the evolving needs of communities over time. The system allows for installation of different roofing panels, windows, doors, services and cladding to the structure, allowing communities to modify their dwellings to meet local culture aesthetic.
