Micro-Homes For The Homeless

A city council and a homelessness charity are working together to try and provide micro-homes for the homeless. Worcester City Council has granted planning permission to The Homeless Foundation for an iKozie Micro-Home. The self-contained, fully-fitted home is designed to house young people who find themselves homeless and provide a base to enable them get back on their feet. Inspired by yacht interiors and first class airline suites, the iKozie measures 186 square foot (17.25sqm), and will be built using modular construction off-site and lifted into position via a crane in the back garden of an existing house upon completion. The idea is to use it as move-on accommodation to help the homeless people transition from hostels into independent living. Read more on the Housing Excellence website.
