Office Pod Inspiration | Habitable Polyhedron a small geometric pod by Manuel Villa

We really love this design by Colombian architects Manuel Villa and Alberto González Sepúlveda, the structure consists of a wood frame configured into what the pair describe as a “truncated cubic-octahedron”–a series of octagonal panels connected by squares and aggregated in a sphere-like volume. The structure is wrapped in a layer of shingles stained black which lends it the appearance of a large dark orb. The glass facade breaks with the geometric pattern to open up the shrouded interior to the sunlight and landscape of suburban splendor (“sculpted” trees, manicured lawn, pebble “terrain”) that lies beyond.
