Future home for homeless people = BILLBOARDS !

Phenomenon of homelessness has became a global question during these years. It seems like there are no solutions at all…..BUT what about transforming billboards into mini homes that can be used as shelters for homeless people?

billbA new initiative called The Gregory Project by Slovakian architectural design firm came up with a great sustainable idea! Roadside billboards that seemed just to ruin the surrounding landscape will be able to house people without roof. These very tiny apartments would require a minimal upkeep and the ad space itself would help fund the project.

These two-rooms apartment  would be built around the triangular shape of the billboard. It would have a kitchen, an office space, a bed with some storage underneath, even a bathroom! These apartments look surprisingly cozy and they are well-decorated.

schThe team behind this project explains their idea : “The Gregory project brings optimization to the construction of billboards. This object would need just a minimal maintenance cost which could be partially paid through the rental of its advert space.”

Although the pictures that you can see are only digital visualizations of what finished home would look like but the whole idea is promising. Despite the fact that The Gregory project is based toward Slovakia  but with some adjustments it can possibly be applied anywhere.
