Molo Design (softwall)

Sunday, December 7, 2008

Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen of Forsythe + MacAllen Design, have been operating a multi-disciplinary design studio since 1996 and are currently based in Vancouver, Canada. Their early projects, before and after earning their Masters Degrees in Architecture in 2000, were a series of houses in Canada and the United States that they both designed and built. These projects have since won international awards and have been published in several design and architecture books and magazines around the world.

softhousing - one of Molo's Design
softhousing (molo concept) seeks an innovative solution to homelessness. It consists of several expandable single occupancy rooms to be located within the shells of existing buildings. The first instance of softhousing, the First Step Softhouse, was conceived for installation in a former lodging house on the Bowery in New York City. When not in use, the rooms can be squeezed back to create an enlarged common area. softhouse is a not-for-profit project under development
