A London architect has designed sleeping pods that could be fixed onto buildings across London and provide the city’s homeless population with shelter.
An architect in the capital has come up with an innovative solution to help the city’s homeless population: Floating sleeping pods.
James Furzer from Dagenham won an award for his plywood pods, which are designed to hang above head height from host buildings in the city.
The temporary shelters, which could be used for an overnight stay or for some respite during the day, are constructed of untreated plywood and held up by a steel frame.
Accessed by a ladder, the space comprises a bed with a mattress and a makeshift living area. The walls are structurally insulated, according to the specifications, and there’s no electricity, although solar power could be introduced if needed.
