Design & Build Workshop


For the design and realisation of a neighbourhood living room in Delft we are looking for talented PEOPLE. A MOTIVATED TEAM WILL BE FORMED INCLUDING different study backgrounds and nationalities. IN ORDER to be part of this TEAM, WORKING ON AN innovative project WITH INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION, we invite you to fill out the form below. AFTER A SHORT SELECTION PROCEDURE YOU WILL BE INFORMED ABOUT THE COMPOSITION OF THE TEAM.  



There are many groups of people who are looking for temporary and affordable housing. But how can a house be more than a shelter and contribute to the integration of different communities? With the program ‘Home not Shelter’, international experience is gained in designing by and for students, refugees and other groups of people. In the city of Delft, the transformation of a former elderly home is executed by the student organisation SHS. Students, elderly and vulnerable people will be living together in the same building. The communal space on the ground floor, the 'neighbourhood living room', will facilitate activities for residents of the building and their neighbours. More information about this project and the location site can be found on
