The colorful community was built in just 13 weeks!


A colorful village of 40 tiny homes opened up in Los Angeles earlier this month. While each 64-foot square unit can only hold one to two people, the project as a whole is a huge step forward when it comes to solving one of the city’s biggest crises: homelessness.

The Chandler Boulevard Bridge Home Village, as it is officially named, was designed and built in just 13 weeks by Lehrer Architects and the city’s Bureau of Engineering, according to a press release. Located in North Hollywood, it is Los Angeles’s latest effort in providing shelter to its homeless population. It is managed by the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission and is currently filled to capacity since its February 2 opening.
