The Coin Collection Program launched by HKMA is a creative solution based on the concept of a mobile bank at your doorstep. Two coin collection carts remodeled from 10-tonnes vehicles equipped with coin counting machines were created by Oval Design to provide coin exchange services to the public free of charge. This is the first of its kinds in the world. The project promotes environmental friendliness through encouraging the public to channel back coins to the circulation system, and incorporates elements of CSR as citizens can donate small change to charity.
Due to war and poverty and other factors, more and more people become homeless and need help, especially when they need to get through cold winter nights in their cities. Each homeless person wants a home. This design will provide them with some help. It is like a door that everyone can open it, so that people with it will have a warm feeling of entering home. The surface can absorb the solar heat and store heat during the daytime. Then, it begins to heat wanderers’ body and keep the temperature during the night. It will surely make thousands of homeless people feel not cold in this winter.
Sustainability is the unique feature of this project. The farmhouse has an effortlessness in its design. The state of art techniques along with locally available materials has enhanced the entire appearance of the region. Designing this part has given a breather to vernacular architecture. This has resulted in creating a welcoming and homely atmosphere. The simplicity of forms and structures has been derived from the regional architectural style. In this project Indian design is used which amalgamates in with the serene landscape.
