On the 24th of February, Russia launched a full-scale war against Ukraine. Since then, the Russian army has bombed Ukrainian cities and villages daily, destroying both civilian and military infrastructure and killing thousands of people. Today, around 10mln Ukrainians have been displaced. Of those, 6.5mln of Ukrainians are currently in the Western part of the country. Housing supply has already run out, and there is none left for those who need it. Families, the elderly, and children are forced to remain in transit zones for weeks, without the ability to find suitable shelter and return to a semblance of normal life.

ABOUT PROJECT

WHY "CO-HATY"?
 

(HATA) – in Ukrainian Hut/house

(COHATY) – in Ukrainian “TO LOVE”

co-HATY is a co-housing project for people who lost it in the time of war.

інфографіка 2 eng-01.png

As an urban laboratory, we cannot stand aside and want to create homes and housing for those who need it.

 

A transformation of the abandoned dormitory was initiated by an active group of professors from Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas. Metalab joined the project to support the team with architectural and urban expertise and also to raise a budget for repairing and furnishing.

In addition to private spaces, the refurbished dormitory will also feature cоmmon spaces - such as a canteen, kids room, workspace, corridors, hall, washing room, storage spaces. 

 

Our team has already involved some of the future residents in the repair work, thereby empowering them to meaningfully participate in the shelter’s creation. Moreover, we are also working on ways to include IDPs into the university’s social and working life. 

 

Together with our partners, university professors, students, and Ivano Frankivsk’s residents, we work every day to create a new space for people's lives as soon as possible.

LET'S CREATE HOUSING TOGETHER FOR THOSE WHO LOST IT!

On March 21, METALAB joined the Druhyi dim IF initiative, which has been running since the beginning of March and aims to transform an old university dormitory into a comfortable home for around 150 IDPs. (Inspirer and coordinator of the initiative, Liliana Horal, a professor at the Department of Finance in IFNTUOG).

Our team undertook the arrangement of the 4th floor and common areas - kitchens and bathrooms on other floors. The pilot project has 80 rooms and common spaces on each floor.
