MOSS Prefabricated Office Allows Employees to Work From Home

Moss Prefabricated Office

As a way to cut down on daily commutes and encourage more people to work from home, Victor Vetterlein has designed Micro Office Systems Space (MOSS), a prefabricated home office powered by clean energy. The offices are a 13-foot octogonal shape, designed to be either leased or purchased and installed in employees driveways, backyards, or even on the roof. The best part? They connect right into the main office.

Vetterlein sees this as a great way to boost productivity and get a few cars off the road without sacrificing environmental impact. The structure is made of laminated tree farm wood and steel connection plates, and the interior is made of Structural Insulated Panels. The cladding is made of Aluminum Composite Panels and is well insulated and weather tight to help maximize energy efficiency.

Radiant underfloor heating and a wood-fired stove keep it toasty warm in the winter, and the solar panels that provide electricity also provide shade in the summer. The skylight allows for natural ventilation and minimizes the need for lighting in the daytime.

If the standard space isn’t big enough, there is also a 3-foot add-on that includes a kitchen, toilet, and wastewater tank.

Do you think your boss would get in on this? Would it make you more likely to want to work from home?

    Interesting, but looks too much like a survival pod or Darth Vader’s escape capsule.

    I don’t care for it because it would stand out in a stark way from the architecture around it.

    This doesn’t seem to make much sense as a home office. It is more green to just use your existing house instead of fabricating something to sit next to it while your house sits unused during the day. But, seems like it would work really well as an on site “job trailer”
