Conkers: Sustainable Pod Homes Designed to Click Together


It all started when the children of an aerospace engineer wanted a treehouse: Their dad thought a shed was just too basic, and instead he created what would later become the first iteration of the “Conker.” These Sci-Fi Conkers are spherical homes (unless you get the wheelchair-accessible “Igloo” version) that feature sustainable materials and a eco-friendly footprint.

You can click multiple Conkers together to fit your needs or growing family, or you can use a single pod as a guest house, spare room, or office. They even sell Baby Conkers that act as treehouses for little ones. What do you think?
