Butterfly House Project
by Butterfly Homes
The Butterfly house is a new, innovative steel-framed housing structure that can be folded for compact shipping and storage, and unfolded into an immediately livable structure. The Butterfly house solution can address the gap of a scalable low-cost yet high-quality interim shelter solution for displaced families. The design fundamentals of the Butterfly house are based on being proactive, reactive and comfortable, all of which we were inspired by both the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan and the apparent need for a more innovative approach to immediately housing millions.
