Artist Gregory Kloehn started off with the idea of building tiny homes to sell. But when a homeless man came to his studio looking for a tarp, Kloehn realized this type of shelter could be life-changing.
With a wooden pallet as a base, Kloehn uses what he finds dumpster diving through illegally discarded garbage to create these sustainable (and frankly quite charming) sofa-sized dwellings for homeless men and women in Oakland, Ca.
While he can’t make one for every homeless person in the city, Kloehn says he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
