Recycled Wood Pallets Turned into Stylish Tiny Homes For the Homeless

1 min read

Architect finds a cheap, efficient, eco-friendly way to shelter the homeless.

Susan Wines set out to build the perfect house for homeless refugees using recycled materials.

Azin Valy, her fellow architect, was also a failure at first. Susan fell on a pile of pallets while walking and the idea hit her.

They set to work dismantling pallets and organizing them into different floor plans.

They finally found the perfect small, low-cost structure after a lot of trial and error. They created a masterpiece of art.

These tiny houses are modern and sleek with their clean lines.

They are modern and stylish, but also very practical. This bench has a cool built-in design.

The interior is just as impressive as the exterior. The inside pallets have been painted a light grey color, and long, slim lights hang from the ceiling.

Because the walls are thin, they don’t take up much space. This makes it easy to divide living spaces.

Designers created a ladder that leads to the loft. It can accommodate a full-size bed.

You can also see how the minimalist lights work well with the simplicity and elegance of the palettes.

These homes could be a great help to homeless people around the globe.
