Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew designed these portable office alcoves that provide a relaxation space for employees.

Each of the cozy office pods is equipped with a large comfortable sofa that enhances each user's relaxation time. The semi-private spaces include three erected walls and one large front opening. In order to fully convey the treehouse theme, each pod is made of wooden paneling and incorporates a few open windows. The interior is made of brightly colored fabrics such as yellow, blue and orange, which infuses each space with colorized positive energy.

One unique feature of these pods is that two of them can be joined together by the large front opening to create a collaborative work area. While Malcew designed previous office shelters that resemble houses with triangular roofing, this particular collection uses flat roofing.
