Solar-powered Sol Pod is a modern prefab mobile studio

We first wrote about Vina Lustado's beautiful, self-designed modern tiny house last year. It seems that the California-based designer is at it again; this time, Lustado has designed a mobile studio that's for sale, intended as a flexible, multi-functional space for people looking to install one as an extra workspace or guesthouse.

Dubbed the Sol Pod, the 16-foot-long structure is built out of prefabricated modular SIP panels (structural insulated panels). The unit is solar-powered with rooftop solar panels.

Stepping inside, the kitchen occupies the space to the right, lit by a large picture window, as well as a sizeable round window.

To the left, raised on a platform that hides storage underneath, is a workspace area that can be equipped with tables and chairs. Above it and up the ladder is a well-lit loft that could be used for lounging, sleeping or storage.

Like Lustado's own tiny home, the space here feels bright and clean, thanks to the layout that prioritizes the kitchen at one end and places a decently sized workspace on the other. No word on how much it is, but you can check out the Sol Pod in person at the Tiny House 101 Workshop during the weekend of October 1 to 2 in Ojai, California. More details over at Sol Haus Design and Vina's Tiny House.
