Dreaming of a backyard office which offers a serene, artistic environment where you can focus on your work in seclusion? You will definitely want to check out the “Archipod,” a tiny spherical structure constructed out of timber. This wood was selected because it is the most replenishable construction material on the planet. This makes it a choice which is at once aesthetically pleasing and eco-friendly. Let’s take a look.
The door opens like a hatch, pulling straight upward.
The interior has a modern, space-age feel to it—kind of a retro futurist vibe. Furnishings in this example are futuristic and minimal, contrasting brightly with the walls and floor, which retain a minimalist character.
The shape of the pod is designed to augment the sense of space from within, giving the illusion that the structure is bigger on the inside. Natural light through the roof enhances this effect.
Of course, you can decorate the interior however you want. Here is what you get with a more traditional selection:
Below is yet another version of the pod with a different set of furnishings and décor. Wondering where you can get curved furniture to fit the walls? Archipod not only designs pods, but also partners with an award-winning manufacturer of furniture to provide chairs, desks, shelves, floor finishes and more to fit the pod.
The pod is quite tiny, measuring a mere 3 meters in diameter. One cool thing about this is the fact that each of the prefabricated sections is quite tiny. Indeed, you can carry each of them right through the middle of a house. That means that you can get them to any site no matter where it is located, even if you have to pass through a building to do it.
The Archipod is heated by an electric panel radiator. The air tightness and insulation in the design keep heat loss to a minimum so that the radiator doesn’t have to run any more than it needs to. This keeps heating costs down. The fiberglass used in the insulation is recycled. Live in a cooler climate? The Archipod has air conditioning installed as well.
