UK-based former Rolls-Royce engineer believes he has found the solution to one of the UK’s most significant issues: the dire state of housing availability.


By housing crises, we do not mean JUST homelessness. There are other problems too.


People with less income cannot afford houses, people with a bit more cannot afford payments every month. Young people are ready for life but don't have the necessary resources to begin the life they're expected to lead.


Particularly for this group, Jag Virdie has designed the Conker.


We have all heard of living pods, and those tiny cubicle-like spaces people try to live in.

However, Virdie promises it is nothing like that. He also quotes Sir Henry Royce on it:


“Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it.”

3.9 m in diameter, the Conker is a pod-shaped like a football or soccer ball and has a carpet area of ten square meters.


It's made from materials that are entirely British and hence requires no imports, thereby reducing costs further. It's also 100 percent weatherproof and has an efficient heat-retention system. What’s more, it is entirely customizable and takes only a day to install.



This radical home can also be linked with others like it to add bathrooms, kitchenettes, etc. But it is irresistible for young people who do not get the privacy they need in their ever-changing lives. Moreover, it would make a beautiful reading spot for the bookworms.


The design was, like most things, a result of necessity as Virdie had to design a spherical treehouse for his children.

Using his extensive car-designing expertise, he created the Conker, a one-stop solution for the modern generation’s housing crisis.


What’s more, the pocket pinch is a one-time $24000 which is extremely low considering the rent a middle-class family has to pay for very modest housing.


The purchase procedure too is a three-step process. Quite hassle-free at that. Just register, check the location and then customize your Conker to make it your own.


It sure seems like an elegant endgame for the modern world, given the alarming rate of inflation and population rise.


Another exciting application might be if governments choose to use conkers or similar sustainable housing products to house an ever-rising homeless population.


It would also be a nifty little gift for your grown-up child who is going to graduate from university and come home at Christmas.
