Single Pole House by Konrad Wójcik, Denmark
‘The aim was to design a structure that would not have any footprint on the nature. Fully functional interior was intended for two people and if needed, in special occasions could be extended up to four. In order to provide as much as possible alternating threads stairs were implemented. This allowed fitting spacious interior into a compact and light from. Construction divides into 4 levels with a clear different functional program on each floor. This well equipped structure is a balance of comfortableness and practicality.’

I’ve seen this house a few times online/in books but none have been photographed as well to capture the interior. Good ol’ Air BnB! :)

The designs are flexible, so it can be produced in varying sizes and according to different requirements. Completely self-sufficient, the house can be fitted with a solar-powered motor.
