In 2016 GRAFT co-founded Heimat2 with entrepreneurs from the fields of urban planning, project development and communication to provide dignified housing solutions for refugees worldwide that combine short and long term solutions from typical disaster relief programmes. The objective is to build residential villages that are socially inclusive and provide living environments of the best possible standard. Apart from the long-term tasks, the immediate goal is to provide shelter and the perspective of a more permanent living situation.
It is not just about building dwellings, but to create quality residential quarters that are architecturally appealing and socially integrative. In close collaboration with well-known charity organisations, Heimat2 presents a holistic concept that includes excellent operating organisations, good communications with residents and neighbours and the opportunity to flexibly enlarge the residential villages or re-use them later for another purpose.
