Homeless people are a sore point for all megacities. A Slovak firm has proposed an alternative housing project for homeless people, which will be located behind billboards. The money for placing advertisements on billboards will be enough to cover the costs of building such houses.
Slovak architectural company DesignDevelop proposed a concept for the construction of homes for the homeless, located in the most unusual place - behind billboards. A project called Gregory project will be a triangular structure with a wooden frame and a concrete base. Outside, such a house will be sheathed with OSB boards.
The layout of the house behind the billboard will be simple but functional: 2 rooms, an entrance hall, a kitchen, a bathroom with a compost toilet. To optimize space, some pieces of furniture will perform several functions at once. So under a high bed they will equip a place for things, and a wide window sill will at the same time serve as a desk. Plus, solar panels will be installed on the house.
The Gregory Project now exists only in the form of computer visualizations, but the architects hope that soon there will be investors for the construction of such houses, and then the first houses behind billboards will appear in the town of Banska Bystrica (Slovakia).
By the way, this project owes its name to an artist named Gregory Kloehn. American for many years constructs small mobile homes for those in need.
