Homelessness in New York City alone has increased by 40% since 2012, a shocking statistic with no signs of slowing down.
Luckily ‘Homed’ offers a solution to cover empty, windowless walls of buildings with temporary housing pods. These are built in a vertical honeycomb arrangement, allowing the pods to be accessed via staircases fitted within a scaffolded frame. Even all the interior fittings are built in modules, allowing complete customisation for the user depending on whether they want to sleep or work. And it gets better - the inner wall structures, bed frames and storage units are made from a plant-based polymer. A great concept that takes care of both the planet and the people living here.
