Upcycled Buses Become New Way to Help the Homeless

Upcycle BusesThe innovation of upcycling has no limits, and as of recent we’ve seen the growing trend reach out to homeless people, providing them with traveling shelters in the form of old buses.

Honolulu, Hawaii, is one of the most recent cities to embrace this new creative form of spreading social good, as Group 70, A firm of architects, planners and interior designers, have partnered with executive housing director Jun Yang, to retrofit five donated buses, where they will be renovated into separate compartments for showering, sleeping and recreational purposes.

Upcycle Bus Plan INTERIORGroup 70’s Ma Ry Kim stated:

‘The entire design is based on the premise that you could walk in to a hardware store, buy everything you need in one go and build everything with no trade skills.”
