Based on the premise that we may all face the prospect of becoming unexpectedly homeless at some stage, Home Suit investigates what creates a sense of home, and how a nomadic and temporal living space could provide not only shelter but also security, peace and dignity for those in need.

Referencing existing emergency shelter and disaster relief kits, Home Suit proposes a new type of kit that is a wearable and portable 'home'. The project examines the relationship between human form, bodily interaction, engagement and communal space to contemplate what 'home' is and what it may mean in the future.
