Design Concept by DesignDevelop: Billboard Home for the Homeless

The Slovakian firm, DesignDevelop has created this tiny triangular home with a footprint of about 16.5 square meters (178 square feet). The house is intended to be built along highways or busy roads so that its side-walls can double as advertising space, effectively making it a live-in billboard.” – Humble Homes

I like the elevated triangular design. I hate the idea of advertising on the exterior. See more of this Billboard Home for the Homeless by DesignDevelop at Humble Homes.

  1. I think it’s great idea that advertisements pay for these homeless houses by putting a roof and 2 extra walls around their billboards. With as much money that goes around in the ad industry, consider how many of these can be built.

  2. i have been in many billboards, working for a sign company and sat inside them and thought the same thing. very cool!

  3. I’d have to say that its a generous IDEA but… the sound of all that traffic would make it almost impossible to live in. It’d be deafening.

  4. I can just imagine how horrible this idea would work by putting homeless in elevated structures on public land next to busy roads.
    I’m sure advertisers would be thrilled also.

  5. I know how you feel about the ad’s Deek, but it is a way to cover the build costs. maybe the wall insulation is also the sound deadining type to cut down the noise.
