Tetra Pod


A prefabricated tiny house using recycled Tetra Pack Cartons as wall and roof material, the Tetra Pod brings together unique design while playing a part in the local, circular economy.

The Tetra Pod is a 64sqm home with all living amenities elevated 40cm off the ground, built from wood, steel, glass and recycled materials. The architecture aspired to blend the pod into its surroundings by making use of the recycled materials’ reflective characteristics, while strategically placed openings carefully frame view corridors.

Stilt Studios, the designers, believe they have the responsibility for multiple aspects, creating unique designs and reducing the environmental impact of our buildings as well as making these designs available to everybody. The architect was Alexis Dornier.
