This cool 7.5 square meter garden or office pod was designed and built in 2009 by architect Manuel Villa with the help of architect Alberto González, as a project and resides in the backyard of a family home in Bogota, Columbia. The surrounding landscaping was designed by Ana María Largacha.




It's the perfect little habitable retreat for children or adults.


Polyhedron-shaped, the interior is built of pine wood and the structure is complete with a front deck made of teak.
