With what others throw away, an artist makes small houses for people on the street

With what others throw away, an artist makes small houses for people on the street

Gregory Kloehn is from Oakland, California, and that's where he began to shape this successful venture by recycling materials and giving people in need a place to live.

Due to the results that his project is giving, the artist and entrepreneur not only generates more and more followers, but also more people who want to join his campaign and to whom he gives classes on how to make functional and habitable designs.

The houses are the size of a bed or a sofa, and while they offer no frills or comforts, they are a far better place to spend the nights than out in the open in an alley.

The constructions have waterproof roofs so that the rain does not pass and they have wheels, so that their owners can transport them according to their needs.


Some of the homeless people in Gregory's neighborhood who were given a house by Gregory say they are the best place they slept after many years. Something not very difficult to imagine since they are compared to all the difficulties of spending the night at the doors of shops, or in little-traveled corners, exposed to the weather, dirt, and the dangers of the street.

The artist also published a book called "Architecture for the most needy", trying to promote that more and more people join in making this type of buildings, precarious, but necessary.
