Homeless Shelter / Ad-Box

Homeless Shelter
Homeless Shelter

Homeless people are quite common in cities. The government and citizens should take a more humanistic way to help them. Our design, "Homeless Shelter", is a combination of advertisement boxes in the street and shelters for the homeless in the city. In the daytime it is an ordinary billboard, while at night it is a temporary living house for the homeless with the boxes pulled out. A folding bed is installed inside so that the homeless could have a good sleep in the warm house. Furthermore, enterprises, which have spent money on this volume-changeable box, show their responsibility on society, thus leaving a good impression on consumers.
