Bow-House is a unique piece of 'guerilla architecture', created by French architect Stephane Malka, that is intended to be available to anyone who needs a place to stay. The building, which consists of a shelter built from recycled materials, is the manifestation of Malka's desire to use architecture to help neglected inner-city populations.
The two-storey structure rests on the wall of a house in Heerlen, Netherlands. It comprises a number of salvaged doors and windows of different shapes and sizes. The interior is unsurprisingly basic and includes an aluminum ladder that offers access between level. It also contains a mattress, dining area and a small patio.
Bow-House may not seem luxurious, but it is certainly more desirable than spending the night sleeping on a park bench or under a bridge.
