Terra-Munus is a proposed refugee community in Leyte to prepare the people for whatever the calamities may come to the island. It will be a settlement built to house the misfortunate people who are hit by various calamities like wars, natural disasters, famine and the disabled. Here they are provided with basic requirements like food, medicine, shelter and sanitation.

Land area = 50,000 sq. meters
Land per person = 15 sq. meters
The minimum space recommended for a refugee camp in United Nation Higher Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) standards is 30 sq. meters per person. However, the researchers adjusted the area per person to 15 square meters due to the limited space and as much as possible maximize the area for a large number of residence. Below is a portion of the UNHCR standards (UNHCR, 1982): Table 1 Some Quantified Norms for Site Planning based from UNCHR Area available per person 30 m2Shelter space per person 3.5 m2Number of people per water point 250 250Number of people per latrine 20Distance to water-point 15 m max.Distance to latrine 30 mDistance between water-point and latrine 100 mFirebreaks 75 m every 300 mDistance between two shelters 2 m min.
Population = land area (sq. meters) / land per person (sq. meters) = 50,000 sq. meters / 15 sq. meters
= 3,333.33 persons
The proposed lot area of the refugee camp is approximately 5 hectares which can cater a minimum population of 3,000 persons and a maximum of 5,000 persons if the buildings will go higher. The design will be very dependent on the user lifestyle. However, not to be bias, it is most likely that people displaced will be from the bracket of low to middle income families since the higher income families will be able to afford to relocate themselves to other urbanized areas.
