Since 2010, the number of homeless people “sleeping rough” on the streets of London has risen 77 percent, according to James Furzer, an architectural assistant at Spatial Design Architects. In response to this humanitarian travesty, he conceived a conceptual parasitic pod to help provide temporary shelter. The winning design of the 6th Space for New Visions design competition, which called for comfortable, functional, naturally-lit spaces with a low environmental impact, “Homes for the Homeless” demonstrates how FAKRO products can be used to create detachable pods that not only attach to existing buildings, but also blend in.
