Euro Birch Plywood connectors & pods, LVL struts, various surface materials.
The node home is 20% smaller than the Otic/Temple system more suited to residential applications. This system was introduced in 2018 with four festival installations. A dedicated roof structure including an overhang all around is the prime addition to the 2018 efforts and allows the node home to be a true “shelter from the storm”.
It uses an eight foot cubic grid wherein two 4′ x 8′ sheets make up a typical wall section and 11’ struts provide diagonal braces where needed. The first prototype node home is a 2 x 3 unit prototype assembled in the Studio in Lincoln Heights. It contains about 400 square feet including a custom built-in kitchen cabinet, desk, small wardrobe, two pods and a trampoline mat sleeping loft.
It uses extruded multi cell polycarbonate, plywood and canvas for the walls, sheet and corrugated fiberglass and a metal/plywood hybrid for the roof. Everything is snapped, slotted or slid in place without metal fasteners.
This plan is for a 4 unit by 3 unit floor plan which contains about 800 square feet plus another 200 square feet of structural loft accessed by a spiral stair. Consideration must also be given to such things as: sanitation (composting toilets?) electrical supply and distribution (solar panels?) water supply, storage, filtration and distribution. Space is available for an interior bath area (mechanical system design not included).
