Snail / shelter


When people lose their homes, they start to wander with all their possessions. They are like snails, curling in the corners of the city, hidden in the dark. In order to give the homeless care and dignity, we have designed a luggage that can become a tent with some privacy. At the same time, The shelter protected them from the wind and rain.

SNAIL is designed a folding structure, which is a large capacity luggage, but also easy to become a shelter. This foldable home can provide warmth, security and privacy for the homeless, and let them get care and respect.
