The 'Dwelling for the Homeless' vessel design might look a bit complex at first glance, but the interior workings of the dwelling are designed to revolutionize how we think about housing.

Designed by Tshepo Mokholo, the 'Dwelling for the Homeless' is essentially a houseboat that is not reliant on fossil fuels. Intended for a single occupant, the 'Dwelling for the Homeless' houseboat works by incorporating a magnetic levitation movement within the unit. The exterior of the vessel design features panels that make use of water currents to power the unit and the charging capacities whilst keeping the interior living space upright.

The conceptual design of the 'Dwelling for the Homeless' houseboat, although intended for nomadic people, shows promise for the future design of other dwellings as well.
