Design for the Alien Within is now online! Spread the word...

Design for the Alien Within is the only source of contemporary hiding place design. Use our interactive design tool to determine how best to equip your home to meet the needs of undocumented immigrants for the 21st Century. Our clean-lined units will transform your location into a stylistically satisfying and technologically advanced refuge. Please send us images of your own hiding places showing how one would use them, and we will animate and upload them!
