Shelter for homeless / product

Shelter for homeless
Shelter for homeless

In Persian, phrase Carton-Khaab means the one who sleeps in a Carton Box, but why they couldn’t have a sufficient one? We all know that this people suffer from serious situation, which one important one is a shelter from cold, warmth or a passerby look. This project suggests a modular light, affordable shelter, made from recycled material, which could be packed and carried like a backpack, and when it’s assembled it would be a cozy shelter for comfortable single or a cozy couple people. It provides some window and a tiny ledge to hold a meal or a mug, and to retrieve fresh air with simple details of a cardboard, and could be reformed by need.
