The Zo-loft Wheelly is Zo-loft architecture and design‘s attempt at developing a portable homeless shelter.
Whilst the Zo-loft is an interesting design concept I think it is lacking severely in terms of practicality. It’s far too big, heavy and expensive to manufacture to realistically think that it would be suitable as a homeless shelter. It seems like the designers were not concerned about the practicality of their design.
Along with many other issues I personally have with the shelter, the shape of it doesn’t make sense to me.
Interesting to look at but negative issues far outweigh any positive points I’m afraid.
