an ex-rolls royce engineer has designed a £21,000 ‘living pod‘ called the conker that can be installed in the garden. the ‘conker’ comprises a 3.9 metre-diameter spherical structure intended as a living space with a bed, kitchenette and lavatory.
they are the creation of jag virdie who, with his startup conker living, hopes to offer an affordable and eco-friendly solution to pricey housing. they are made from aluminium and recycled plastic.
designed for durability and also eco-friendly, the structure is adaptable to various terrain, not interrupting the ground with just four legs. the structure can harvest rainwater as it flows down the sphere, which can be filtered and reused. in winter time, its heat reclamation system confines warmth within the pod, lowering electricity consumption.
because of its shape there is no necessary maintenance on the outside and the shell can be updated anytime by requesting new panels. each one can be individually styled to suit its environment and can be adapted so that it blends into its environment.
