OUR VISION

We envision a world where no one is homeless, and where everyone has access to opportunities for economic and social upliftment.

WHO WE ARE

We are a one-of-a-kind non-profit innovation studio that uses design as our primary tool to solve one of the most pressing global problems: homelessness. We design and provide shelter and infrastructure solutions for the homeless and vulnerable that are scalable, sustainable, and able to create opportunities for communities to emerge out of poverty. Our approach empowers communities to replicate our solutions on their own, and reduce dependencies on support, creating ownership and pride, and unlocking untapped potential for change.


We operate two design studios, in Singapore and Mumbai, and create high quality women focussed design solutions for the poorest of communities.

How HYDE products are made

Focused on delivering user-friendly and durable products, we conduct studies, identify market gaps, and adapt our design over and over again, working with design and manufacturing experts from around the world. With WeatherHYDE, we are now finally able to offer an innovative solution that bridges the gap for weather proof shelters. We are also working on more products that we believe would be able to solve the housing crisis, and create better lives for everyone.

IN THIS COMMUNITY ALONE, MORE THAN 30 CHILDREN DIED WHEN THE NIGHT TEMPERATURES FELL TO NEAR FREEZING. IT WAS AFTER THIS INCIDENT THAT BILLIONBRICKS TOOK ACTION AND INNOVATED WEATHERHYDE.
