Campus Port of Amsterdam

Demountable T-shelters (temporary housing)


The Mobile Factory is starting a demonstration project in 2012 on the grounds of the Port of Amsterdam involving the construction of ‘T-shelters’. These temporary housing units are constructed of Q-Brixx made from construction debris.

The standard international size of T-shelters is 18-20 m2. The shelters made of Q-Brixx are fully demountable, so that the building blocks can be reused as construction materials for permanent housing after the temporary phase.

The transformation process from debris to earthquake-proof housing is demonstrated during guided tours. To register for a demonstration, contact The Mobile Factory at the e-mail address
