Innovative architectural design team from Slovakia came up with a brilliant idea how to transform roadside billboards into small apartments for the homeless. The two-room apartments would be built around the triangular shape of the billboard and feature a kitchen, an office space, a bed with some storage underneath, and even a bathroom.

DesignDevelop, the team behind this project, explain the idea on their website: “The Gregory project brings optimization to the construction of billboard structures. Such an object would need just  a minimal maintenance cost which could be partially paid through the rental of its advert space”.

Although these are only digital visualizations of what the finished home would look like, we can see that the idea behind this is truly promising. The study of Gregory project is based toward Slovakia, because of the easy implementation thanks to the water and energy grids. However, with some adjustments it can possibly be applied anywhere.
