Story


a stone cold problem

There are more than 33 million homeless all over the world who have no protection from life-threatening extreme WEATHER conditions. 

In 2013, almost 9,000 families had been rendered homeless from communal riots in the North Indian town of Muzaffarnagar. In this community alone, more than 50 children died when the night temperatures fell to near freezing. After this incident, billionBricks decided to take action, and innovated an emergency kit to protect homeless families from the harsh weather conditions which the homeless and vulnerable endure while living on the streets.

our innovations

the cheapest heat source

The innovative use of a triple layered flysheet makes the weatherHYDE extremely suitable for extreme weather conditions. The reflective layer traps a family's body to heat for warmth, and reflects solar heat for summers.

provide privacy for women

Our triple layer skin blocks light and doesn't cast embarrassing shadows. The fully enclosed weatherHYDE provides privacy and a safe haven for women, their children and families. 

adapt to urban use

The sturdy design allows weatherHYDE to be deployed in tough conditions. We added weight to the frame to eliminate the need for anchoring. Reflective details and bright colors increase urban visibility and night safety.
