Home Bench

Home Bench is a protective place, shielded from the elements. It’s a place hidden from prying eyes where you won’t be bothered by the outside world. It provides a temporary shelter for a man without house. To the helpless of society it offers shelter and the promise of good health.
Home Bench is of simple and elegant design, and therefore of great public appeal. Once mounted atop an ordinary park bench it can be easily adjusted according to bench length. It is quite practical to open, close, and once closed occupies very little storage space.
Home Bench is also easily constructed from simple materials.
