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.
The pod’s designed is aimed to minimize its base frame and so the sides are angled and cantilevered. The pod has a shell structure of 8 inches wide insulated metal frame and an exterior skin made from rubber coated fiber cement panels. The interior of the pod will be made of bleached birch-faced plywood. Inside the W-pod are storage, benches, and a fold-down worktable. It has a wood stove that will provide heat during winter and serves as a ventilation duct during summer. The pod’s electricity will be provided by a portable solar and wind turbine tower by Solar Stik. However, the pod will also have a battery pack underneath for extended use of electricity. Lifting the W-pod Writers Pod Concept is easy with the threaded fasteners placed at the bottom of the pod attached to the steel structural frame and four detachable eyebolts on the roof.
