The brief was to design a sustainable terraced house in Cardiff. I took the approach of creating a large open space that housed enclosed private pods. The pods would be small to encourage use of the ground floor living room. While the pods inhabited the volume of the building, some would poke through, the main bedroom pod, protrudes out to allow views onto the street. The child pod, with its play space would poke through the roof to allow for maximum light. Some pods have walls that stop at balustrade level and some pods are only walls on wheels. The house is prefabricated, arriving in three lorries. The walls arrive, then the frame, then the pods. The house shares a new green space at the front, and a raised allotment scheme at the back.
