The Micro Pod is an exploration of the possibilities latent in a compact and flexible space. It is visualized as an empty 450 SF shell that can be customized in to various uses such as an office, studio, play area, guest area, entertainment space, even a tiny cabin in a remote area. The possible arrangements are limited by the user’s imagination.

The front and back is covered in glazing that slopes with the roof line and showers the interior with natural daylight. The roof slightly overhangs the glazing to protect the inside from direct solar gain. The exterior is designed to withstand the elements either in an urban setting or out in a natural setting without feeling out of context.
