These 'Lucy in the Sky' hotel pods are super modern micro dwellings that sit on top of existing urban structures in the harbor district of Deventer in the Netherlands.

Each one of the three micro dwellings was designed by a different duo of Dutch designers and architects. The Lucy Cube is a glass cube that measures just 13 square feet and sits on top of an abandoned grain tower. LucyPWR is a structurally intricate weathered timber pod. It's currently situated on top of a long brick warehouse, but was actually designed to be easily movable. The LucyGLXY is the luxury unit out of the three. It's space age-inspired and looks the most pod-like, as its name would suggest. It's located on the roof of a former factory that is now a studio space.

Micro dwellings are the latest movement in eco architecture, and these hotel pods are a beautifully designed take on the popular concept.
