"Earth Pod One"

Batesville, VA.
1997-98 * 4500 SF
New Age Builders

Conceived as a habitable land sculpture, this unique Earth Structure dwelling is constructed from recycled tires and cans. It featured a hydronic Interior Ecosystem inc. a spring head, in-floor rivulet, 12 ft. waterfall, and aquatic pool with bio-filter. This is integrated with a vertical "stack effect" naturally ventilating Atrium and "Kiva" fireplace, combining all holistic Earth, Air, Fire, and Water elements. Thus the home is literally "Organic". Gracing the structure is the work of master stone masons Toru Oba and Elizabeth Nisos.
