This thesis proposes a new typology of migrant worker housing that will serve the current migrant worker and his/her family, but can also adapt over time as demographics and needs change. There is a lack of housing for migrant workers and their families and the housing available is substandard and overcrowded. This thesis contends that migrant workers and their families deserve well-designed housing that provides security, promotes community, and meets the needs of diverse demographics. The design solution seeks to foster safety and a sense of permanence and community, while providing spaces that invite and accommodate all individuals. This thesis proposes a design solution to meet the needs of these individuals in their current situation, yet has the ability to change over time as necessary.
