Urban Shell – Shelter for Homeless by Agustin Otegui

Urban Shell Shelter has been developed to work as a shelter for changing weather conditions. During the night or in cold weather environments, the trolley is placed against a corner protecting the user from rain, wind or snow. The roof cover keeps the safe from water or snow while its lateral covering panels keep them protected from the wind, creating a warm and cozy shelter. During the day or in hot weather conditions its roof protects them from sunlight, while its open structure lets the air pass through, keeping the fresh and comfortable inside.

Urban Shell has the added value of an external core that works as a structure for hanging and arranging extra belongings or simply keeping them handy. The protection panels apart from keeping their belongings safe from the rain, they help them have some dignity and privacy by making them look as neat persons even if the things inside are not arranged or tidy.
