(RE)CONNECTION

LUMIPOD is minimal, like the original cell.

This prefabricated housing module, a real cocoon of simplicity, settles in the middle of Nature to welcome city dwellers willing to relax away from the concrete jungle.

BETWEEN INDOORS AND OUTDOORS

LUMIPOD is built around a LUMICENE® window. This new concept uses curved glass in aluminium frames sliding between two rails, allowing the interior space to be occasionally transformed into an outdoor space.

Closed, LUMIPOD is a comfortable cocoon but fully immersed in Nature.

In a single gesture, LUMIPOD eliminates the boundary between interior and exterior for an unforgetable experience.

LUMIPOD FAMILY

LUMIPOD is now available in 3 different sizes, in order to fulfill all expectations. From the 18m² minimalist hotel room to the 36m² family cocoon.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Foundations

LUMIPOD‘s structure is positioned on 4 ‘light’ foundations. Depending on the type of soil different options are possible. We recommend screw piles as they minimize the impact on the installation site. Water and electricity connections are prepared prior to installation.

Structure

LUMIPOD‘s structure is made of steel to guarantee the level of rigidity required by the LUMICENE window. It consists of a frame placed on 4 foundation plots; a rear module integrating all the technical equipment and totally manufactured within the factory; a front module bolted on the rear module directly onsite. The curved exterior wall is wood frame and incorporates 20cm of rockwool, a protective rain sheeting on its outer face, and a moisture protection film on the interior layer. The roof and the floor are insulated with 8cm of polyurethane insulation panels and 15cm of rockwool.

Roof

Waterproofing is made using a Firestone EPDM membrane installed in the workshop. Water pipes are incorporated within the rear poles.

Exterior cladding

LUMIPOD is wrapped into a burned wood exterior cladding, inspired by the Shou-sugi-ban Japanese tradition. But it offers an almost infinite choice of coverings to fit perfectly into its new decor.

Window

LUMIPOD is equipped with a 5m diameter LUMICENE window made of curved glass. It consists of curved panels sliding on a circular rail.
By default the LUMICENE window comes with a 6FE(20)6 (Ug 1.1 W / m2K) curved double glazing. Other options are available depending on weather conditions, including triple glazing 6FE(12)4(12)6.
The window is equipped with 2 locks at each end. LUMICENE is entirely manufactured by the Saint-Gobain Group in a factory based in Chambéry, France.

Interior Design

LUMIPOD has been designed as a luxury hotel room … in the middle of nature. The full height wall cabinetry between bedroom and bathroom is made of in Natural oak timber veneer with a mat finish. It includes a wardrobe positioned to the right of the bed. The bed is like suspended, and integrated in a shallow niche. A curved rod allows to accommodate blackout curtains in front of the entire glass surface. The ceiling is made of wool felt panels and the floor of light oak with mat varnish. Door handles and joinery pulls are coming in anodized sanded black finish.

Bathroom

The bathroom is equipped with a toilet, a basin, a shower.
Axor fittings come with a chrome steel finish by default, but other finishes are possible.
The floors and walls are covered with ceramic mosaic tiles.

Heating and cooling

By default a Toshiba reversible air conditioning system is used ​​to manage both heating and cooling requirements. A disbursement in the roof accommodates the outdoor unit. Other options are available.
LUMIPOD can for example be equipped with a wood burning stove if there are no cooling requirements in summer.
A CMV is positionned in the bathroom, and the water heater is integrated in the technical space in between wardrobe and toilets.

Water and electricity

LUMIPOD must in its current version be connected to electricity, water and wastewater networks.

Transport and installation 

LUMIPOD has been designed to be compatible with both road and maritime transport. Its different modules can be put into a container to travel. The installation is coordinated by our teams, sometimes relying on local companies depending on the installation site. A LUMIPOD is assembled within 2 to 3 days (except foundations and networks which will have been prepared upstream).

READY TO (RE)CONNECT ?

LUMIPOD is available in Europe and manufacturing lead time is currently about 3 to 4 months depending on size and options.

LUMIPOD will soon be available in the US, Canada, Australia and New-Zealand, for which we are taking pre-orders

For any other destination please contact us. We will be happy to check the feasability of your project.
