Pod[e] in collaboration with AHA Design Studio have designed an architectural passive-solar pod. The driving force behind the design was to create a living space that has a minimal footprint on the environment with a design philosophy being 100% sustainability. Careful consideration was put into finding the perfect piece of land that would give us the opportunity to build our luxury off-grid pods, placing them in a north/south orientation which is the main factor in utilising the sun's energy. Land was purchased on Mount Westall, on the Westall Way Loop near Streaky Bay which has expansive views of the rugged coastline and native flora and fauna unique to the Eyre Peninsula. From the orientation of the pod to the footing system and building materials used we have achieved an impressive energy efficiency rating of 7.8 stars. We have used a concrete-free footing system and have specifically chosen our roof, wall and flooring products for their high insulating properties. With double glazed windows, natural airflow and a wood fire, the pods will maintain a comfortable living temperature all year round.
Run entirely off-grid using solar energy, rainwater and a worm farm for the waste system the pods have next to no footprint on the environment.
Not only are the pods sustainable, off-grid and environmentally friendly they are also extremely appealing to the eye with high-end finishes creating an indulgent luxurious experience for guests.
