Poverty

Both the material change and the process of a project can contribute to positive transformations within social relations and across different categories that we use to define poverty.
Hereby it can potentially achieve a positive result for the family to escape or avoid poverty.

Health

We believe that the process of a project and the realized architecture plays an important role in the future of the physical and social health of the inhabitants.

A combination of sustainable materials and a clever design can deliver a healthy house and increased self-esteem.

Cities

Populations are growing every day and unavoidable the need for affordable housing grows along.

C-re-aid is working hard to tackle the major challenge to achieve affordable and low-cost housing that is not compromising on quality or environment.

Hunger
Climate

Construction industry is a major consumer of non-renewable resources and is responsible for a large part of CO2 emissions. The use of local and ecological materials contribute to positive climate actions. C-re-aid develops alternative building techniques to raise awareness and inspire communities to promote an ecological building culture.
