Architect Jean mic Perrine has come up with an audacious new idea – ready made, stackable, expandable pod homes. Jean mic Perrine project is named Perrinepod, and is a cute prefab home that can be built in just 3 days and withstand everything from earthquakes to cyclones. In conclusion a great choice for those who don’t like to wait. The philosophy behind Perrinepod is that the houses should be nothing more or less than its inhabitants need, and that simple design and beautiful material should be able to stand the test of time: “Living spaces have become as transient and irrelevant as fashion“. This disaster-proof prefab is not only durable, but green in its material, systems, and long life-span.
The Perrinepod comes with a Solar Edwards Heat Pump hot water system that uses refrigeration technology in reverse to heat the water. A small electric booster motor can be powered by a solar cell for the complete environmental package. As for the pricetag, the one-bedroom version, which weighs in at a hefty 114 tons, starts at $125,000, while a three-bedroom, two-bathroom pod starts at $250,000. Additionally, Perrinepods can be stacked on top of each other (up to 30 units tall!) to create larger complexes. – Via – Belowtheclouds
