unit[e] by Aranchii Unit
Unit[e] is an award-winning behavioral architectural system, consisting of pre-fabricated energy-saving and eco-sustainable housing units that can be interconnected and reconfigured in a flexible and adaptive manner.
As the family grows and evolves, so does the house: new units get connected and reconfigured. Refugees can start with a very affordable basic unit, then expand once their financials strengthen.
Our design focuses on human needs—it is critical for war refugees to regain their dignity and sense of normalcy. Air and water quality, temperature, and noise control provide maximum health and comfort.
Units can be transported and installed anywhere, as they don't require a regular foundation and can use autonomous climate control and sewage. Autonomy is vital as most of the Ukrainian urban infrastructure lies in ruins. And when the refugees are ready to move on, they can take their house with them!
No need to blame the contractors—all units are produced to exact specifications through an automated and digitally controlled process. Each unit is fully furnished, wired, and ready to roll at the moment's notice. We can deliver comfort living on time when refugees need them.
We use cradle-to-cradle design and recyclable materials for our units with a low carbon footprint. Quality insulation, AI-driven climate control, and effective energy grid provide superb energy savings.
