Rooftop Billboard Tiny House in Mexico City

Earlier I showed you how a Slovakian design firm has created a billboard tiny house design in the hope of benefiting the homeless.


Right now I want to show you an example of how it was actually done in Mexico. It’s mounted on a rooftop in Mexico City and was designed by architect Julio Gómez Trevilla for Scribe Marketing according to this article by Niall Burke at Humble Homes.

The tiny home up here was lived in and used temporarily by an artist who was hired to paint the billboard. Inside you’ll find all you need… A bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and desk. Please enjoy.

    Yikes! Bathroom?

    As charming as this, I would be very nervous living there. I happened to be in Mexico City years ago at the time of a major earthquake.

    What a location, who would have thought to build here!. There must be thousands of similar sites in our cities where a small home could be placed.

    I was just about to send this site owner a link about this very thing. I have a cousin who is homeless, wish i could do something for him, but my own future is just as precarious.

    Sketchy though the bathroom situation might be, this strikes me as practical and even cozy. What a cool way to live, perched in the midst of a vibrant city.

    A bit odd that the window and door open on the billboard side – but I love the rooftop deck.

    Wow, this is awesome.
    I can’t believe we can’t do this kind of thing. This could end our homelessness.
    I love the cleverness of the entire housing…we could put housing everywhere is the message. Great work.
