BUILDING LIVES ONE BRICK AT A TIME

billionBricks is a one-of-a-kind non-profit innovation studio that uses design as our primary tool to solve one of the most pressing global problems: homelessness. We design and provide shelter and infrastructure solutions for the homeless and vulnerable which are scalable, sustainable, and able to create opportunities for communities to emerge out of poverty. Our approach empowers communities to replicate our solutions on their own, and reduce dependencies on support, creating ownership and pride, and unlocking untapped potential for change.


We operate two design studios, in Singapore and Mumbai, and create high quality women focussed design solutions for the poorest of communities.
