Home Phone is an exploration of shelter and the concept of home, particularly as it relates to homelessness.
Telephone booths, once a common sight around our cities, are being removed from service as cell phones become commonplace. For many homeless without the benefit of a cell phone, the public phone booth is an important amenity to connect beyond local neighborhoods. We see the loss of the phone booth as a loss of public infrastructure in our cities. Our design reshapes that public facility by creating a stylish, small home - a home phone.
We're not suggesting that Home Phone is a realistic solution to homelessness problems in Vancouver, instead an opportunity for discussion.
