Tropical pod house

Designed with a tropical climate in mind, the prefabricated individual pods of this home design allow breezes to enter the courtyard and blow air through the site. Though presented here on a flat site and formal, symmetrical layout, this system could easily be adapted to uneven terrain and pods placed in whatever grouping is desired. The pods are connected via glass walkways, strengthening the connection with the outdoors, and the public rooms open onto the courtyard via sliding glass doors. In their final form, the frames would be wrapped in a lightweight, waterproof, breathable membrane.
