Even the sleek windowed wood exterior of this curvilinear pod house by Hanse Haus can not be compared to how cool the interior is. The centerpiece of this brilliant design: a rotating cylinder adjacent to the living area that contains four rooms that can be rotated into view, saving on critical circulation normally sucked up by hallways and other support spaces.


At just under 20 square feet, the central spinning cylinder is controlled by remote so that bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are all available at the push of a button. Each of these rooms is color-themed and each entrance is curved for a combination of safety and aesthetic reasons.


Though it is unique at the moment and was custom designed for a young professional couple, the mass-production potential of such a unit seems its most compelling attribute. The space saving aspect of the interior design in particular should be applicable in all kinds of situations.
