Project Commune, in collaboration with Dormitory Association of Singapore (DASL), is reshaping local migrant workers’ living spaces. Utilising visual communication and 3D models, the project crafts a home away from home that explores room layouts and prototype concepts, culminating in handbooks for future dormitory design and management. These guidelines foster positive community behaviours in migrant worker dormitories, transforming lives one room at a time.
