The “Live Pod” from Miso Soup Design is a prefabricated house that co-exists with the cycle of nature to support a sustainable lifestyle. Made of renewable material such as rain screen facade, bamboo flooring and photovoltaic panel, the prefab is covered by green roof to collect rainwater for irrigation of an edible garden. The portable house can be detached in components, so it could easily be moved from one place to other on a tractor trailer. Despite their unusual shape, the windows of the structure create playful and operable openings, as they are arranged off site to achieve quality control.
One of the most interesting aspects of the Live Pod is that unlike other prefabs, it allows room for modification, for the residents can customize the exterior wall, to any color and texture, and change the rain screen panel, from painted aluminum, recycled resin or cement boar. The column free wall apart from becoming the structural anchor also hides all mechanical, electrical, and HVAC ducts and cables connected to the mechanism on the rooftop, to create a clutter-free living space.
