16 homeless people have a safe place to stay inside a single 40-foot shipping container. The container rooms are heated, lit and provide hot water, while they also come equipped with smoke detectors and bathrooms that are accessible to the handicapped. The shipping container is subdivided into eight rooms for the homeless with two beds per room. There is also an office for two trained staff members so someone could be on site to admit and care for the homeless seeking shelter.
i like how the space is used effectively and you still have all the needs for a house design. the way the layout is done gives you enough room of spare area to add or move things around, the garden out the back is also simple and the way it covers the container more so it looks affective.
"I remember walking through the city streets with a former boss once. Along the way, we passed many homeless people seeking cash and encouragement. He said out loud which of them should receive anything. I wondered silently how he could judge since, although I knew he'd had a troubled childhood, he'd never lived a day on the street . <3"
