Inventive group of designers develop a pioneering resolution to homelessness.
An assembly of designers and architects based in Slovakia known as Design Develop has created a ground-breaking solution to one of London’s most complex troubles; homelessness.
Latest government data imply that the amount of people sleeping on the streets has augmented by about one-third last year. The statistic made a lot of UK’s leading charities for homelessness call for development and reform.
Design Develop’s scheme called ‘Project Gregory’, suggests converting roadside billboards into stable homes for the homeless, with the anticipation that living costs and preservation could then be covered by the marketing revenue created.
The designs for these shelters have already been planned; the interior will be modern in style and would include office space, a kitchen, sleeping area and a single bathroom. The construction will be wooden with a concrete base and intended to conserve the billboard proportions.
The scheme has been planned with the Banska Bystrica (a Slovakian city) in mind, where the accessible water and energy grids would assist a quick and easy execution.
On the other hand, the group believes that this certain model could be easily modified and adapted to work in a lot of major cities across the entire globe.
