Hole box

Hole box (Cardboard box shelter and home for homeless people)
Boxes are their home and shelter. However, most boxes are weak and do not protect the body and the boxes are limited in size. As solutions, Homeless people can connect boxes directly and create the resting spaces they want. Four holes are drilled in the edge of the box with perforations. The holes are easily opened by pushing them with fingers. They can be connected with strings, vinyl or clothes. By connecting boxes, they can prevent the wind and sleep in the boxes. When moving, they can move the boxes as a single load. It is convenient for people to lift boxes.
