The city of San Jose has unveiled two potential designs for its tiny home community, which has been proposed to house the several thousand homeless people the city has.
The designs were conceptualized by the architectural firm Gensler for free, and were made to be "aesthetically pleasing, efficient, safe, practical and comfortable." One of the designs has a locking door, storage shelves and a "pop-up look with room for a bed," while the other has a "contemporary slanted roof" with a living space and large windows.
One of the next and most important steps towards building San Jose's tiny home communities is finding locations for them, with previous proposals facing opposition from the unwelcoming neighbors the sites would be next to.
