The Archipod is a new concept in backyard office design. With the increase in technology and the rise in traffic and travel costs, perhaps a backyard office is just the place for you to get your work done without feeling trapped in your house all day.

Archipod offers workers an alternative to office work. Designed around the idea that a garden building should become part of the garden landscape, Archipod’s “pod” office is unique to other garden office designs in that it consists of a 3m-diameter sphere rather than a conventional square box. The structure is prefabricated in sections that are sized to allow all the parts to be carried through a house, so it doesn’t matter where you live — they’ll be able to get it into your garden.

There are power outlets, data ports, electric heat, and natural light and ventilation. Additionally, because of its unique shape and the generous natural light from the roof dome, it actually looks bigger on the inside than the outside. See for yourself.

Thanks, George!
