People Pod: Whimsical Home Office Puts Work in Your Yard


More and more of us are telecommuting for work, either full-time or just part of the workweek. Home offices are notoriously distracting – particularly if you have family or roommates home all day – and this is precisely why Archipod developed their garden office pods.

The office pods look a bit like giant acorns or the seed pods of some giant exotic flower. Round, covered in shingles and adorned with porthole windows and top-hinged gull wing doors, the pods are the sort of whimsical structures you might expect fairytale woodland animals to live in.

Each pod is equipped with electrical hookups, a semicircular interior desk, concealed lighting and an integrated heater. Although it seems the perfect place to put one’s office, the little backyard pods can also be used as dance or yoga studios, libraries, play rooms, music rooms or any number of other functions.
