Klong Toey is currently the largest and oldest areas of informal dwellings in Bangkok. More than 140.000 people is estimated to live here, and most are living in sub-standard houses with few or no tenure rights or support from the government.
The area has great social challenges mostly due to the lack of public services like healthcare, affordable education, sanitation and electricity. An extensive drug problem greatly affects the social climate followed by high unemployment rates, violence and crime.

The Gjoevik Care Centre is an institution for juvenile asylum seekers. The centre provides shelter and safety for immigrants under the age of 15 and helps those of them who are struggling with traumatic experiences from famine and conflicts around the world. Our assignment was to create a refuge for the children which also could serve as a place for meaningful activities in their daily lives.

What the construction of the new Shelter Home for the Homeless offers, beyond satisfying the needs of shelter and food for the residents, is an opportunity for improving the quality of life of a socially excluded group, whose needs reach further than the simple fact of finding a place to sleep.
