Billboards Can Soon Become Little Shelter Houses For The Homeless
One anonymous man behind the Project Gregory in Slovakia decided to re-purpose the roadside billboards and extend them into economical houses for the homeless.
In these digital visualizations, the stylish little houses are triangular in shape and each of them feature a living area, a bathroom, a kitchen, a desk and a bed. The billboard homes by architecture team DesignDevelop would take place in accommodated areas for the electricity, plumbing and water facilities to be more available.
The first billboard houses for homeless might become a reality in Slovakian city of Banská Bystrica. It is estimated that one of these houses would cost around 4000 (US$5,434) per year while the income from one billboard advertising is around €3,600 ($4,890) per year.
this is such a great idea as the advertising pays for the shelter during the year…
i was thinking of this possibility just yesterday! cool. good to know someone thought of this already and actually executed it :)
The project have a big problem, I WANT to live in that house!
