The Calyx Project by Forage Built

Social enterprise Forage Built exists to provide a meaningful change to the problem of homelessness through an innovative, sustainable, and integrated housing solution. Director Andrew Steele has designed a 16sqm dwelling, providing a safe, affordable, modular, transportable, energy efficient and eco-friendly home for people experiencing homelessness. Each pod is a personal retreat, sleeping one, with an ensuite, small kitchen and ample space for storage.

The Calyx homes are to be built in a planned community with a central larger pod for communal activity. This community focused, evidence based design derived from extensive consultation and surveys of people experiencing homelessness, enabling occupants to start to safely connect with others to form community, access services and find their way back into permanent housing.
