The CAT POD was developed as part of a multi-use, modular building concept. Each module is a prefabricated, vaulted, concrete shell that can be infilled with wood or other construction. For the CAT POD, FSC certified Teak was reclaimed from flooring samples, and used for the infill. The Teak is fitted to the concrete shell to form a sheltered enclosure with a door. A thick piece of natural, unbleached wool felt forms the floor.
The concrete's high thermal mass gathers heat during the day, and slowly releases it overnight. The slatted Teak wall and door may allow a breeze to flow though. Appealing to a cat's desire for warmth, the CAT POD provides a secure shelter for a catnap.
Designed and built by Standard. The reclaimed wood for this shelter was generously provided by East Teak.
