“Miles away from the bombast of HGTV-style reality TV.”

- Bloomberg

Architecture should inspire you. But most design content has been hijacked by repetitive, reality-style television.

Shelter is the only channel in the world bringing you high-quality, authentic programming on architecture, urban planning, and the built environment.

Showcasing award winning feature films, exclusive Shelter Originals, episodic series and shorts, along with dedicated channels such as the Michael Blackwood Architecture Collection, The Design Emotive, 9 Sekunden, Never Too Small, Dwell and green magazine.

Shelter’s curated film library will keep you entertained, creative and inspired.

Learn from the great Starchitects such as Zaha Hadid, John Lautner, Harry Seidler and Tadao Ando.

Delve into small space living with titles like Tiny Spaces, Shipping Home, Small is Beautiful, Never Too Small and Microtopia.

Explore sustainable solutions with A Simpler Way, Life Off Grid, Living the Change and The Mill.

Handpicked for you by the team at Shelter, no algorithms here.

Shelter also brings you exclusive Originals that you won’t find anywhere else, such as popular debut series Inspired Architecture.

"Each installment of Inspired Architecture is small but perfectly formed."

A delightful immersion

Shelter brings the opportunity to travel in around others spaces and places like no other app or publication out there. I relish in traveling the world, learning an architects process and a designers creative mind. Even for short periods from daily tasks, I find Shelter to be a delightful immersion.

Amazing and inspiring stories

My partners and I run an architectural design firm together and we frequently draw inspiration from the very personal stories shared through Shelter. Each video features a rich design story that is well told with deliberate pacing and beautiful accompanying music that I find very engaging.

Must Watch Viewing

So very good to find an architectural library chock full of titles -albeit in video format. The trick is reminding one’s self to take a breather and watch. Seriously good for seriously committed architects and architecture fans. Recommended!
