Artist Drawing Studio, Cambridge, Massachusetts

This roof-top pod module, or “Podule,” is a prototypical studio living or work space. The steel frame structure is independent of the existing structure: the support columns extend through the space below to isolated footings. The enclosure of the Podule is Kalwall Nanogel translucent panels. These translucent walls are surrounded by a screen of aluminum bar grating to further diffuse the light and shield the enclosure from direct sunlight.
