This Bachelor thesis attempts to give a better solution to a increasing problem due to permanent people relocation. A unit prepared to give shelter and comfort with standard living characteristics will be designed in terms of affordability, area to be assembled, climatology conditions and period of use. The unit will be tested theoretically for different areas, materials, purposes, configurations and energy needs. Nowadays refugees in camps, relocated populations after natural disasters and poor country citizens live in deplorable constructions consisting in tents that only offer a limited temporal solution with no dignity and comfort conditions. Therefore economical viability is taken to account in order to carry out the project in the actual market.
