The XPOD was originally developed as a flexible housing concept. The XPOD is a modular and switchable system of composite units. They consist of composite elements and can be made in different sizes. The unit is constructed from 8 identical shell sections that arise from a cut-up ellipsoid. Due to the identical size of the basic construction, it is easy to make it in series. The basic construction is switchable and stackable and equipped with all the basic facilities with regard to electricity and air conditioning. The XPOD is light and easy to place and move in its entirety. The XPOD can be used in a multitude of functions. As workspace on industrial heritage sites or as recreational housing in nature reserves. The possibilities are endless.
