This is the spherical pod that creates an environment conducive for creative working, meditation, and innovation. Designed by British inventor and Engineer Chris Sneesby, the Archipod's interior conveys a sense of space that belies its compact external dimensions. The frame is constructed from timber and clad with Western Red Cedar shingles. The walls are double insulated, plastered, and painted, resulting in a seamless 12 1/2' diameter x 8 1/4' high interior space with no visible joints. A stainless steel-framed porthole window provides a view to the outdoors and more can be added if desired. A locking gull-wing door that raises and lowers assisted by an air piston provides access to the Archipod. A built-in electric panel heater provides warmth when contemplating life's challenges during the cold, short days of winter while the roof's 6' diameter polycarbonate dome opens on a hinge to let in natural light and the invigorating scents of spring. Ceiling-mounted, dimmable lights provide mood lighting and two double-socket electrical outlets enable the use of a computer or other instrument of inspiration. Optional flooring, lighting, and office accessories available. External dimensions: 13' 2" Diam. x 9' H (2,500 lbs.)
