W-Pod Writers Pod Concept by Victor Vetterlein

Building an eco-friendly structure is extremely beneficial both to all mankind as well as the environment and so Victor Vetterlein created his W-pod Writers Pod Concept. The pod will be built in different location on a private property near Aspen, Colorado USA. However, Victor’s client is a writer that wants the studio designed to be movable by truck or helicopter to various locations for writing inspiration purposes. For the said purpose, the write’s pod is designed in accordance to public roadway restrictions, which is a maximum of 8 feet in width and 6 feet in height. The pod needs not to have running water supply as well as bathroom since all of its potential locations are within walking distance to residential structures. However, the post will have the desired amount of electricity supply and because locations are prone to heavy winter snow, the pod has the separate six feet high base frame and a detachable staircase.
