Another day, another prefab company trying to lure you into the out-of-the-box home dream. This time, Coodo from Hamburg, Germany, shows off its newly completed project, a 720-square-foot “Coodo 64,” installed in Bielefeld, Germany.

With rounded edges (also seen in the Alupod prefab concept from Hong Kong) and sleek, contemporary fixtures, this Coodo 64 is on the larger end of the company’s offerings, which also sells modular pods as small as 100 to 170 square feet.

Inside, there’s enough room for an open living room and kitchen, with a workspace off to the side—all facing the front glass walls and porch. There’s a separate bedroom and bathroom, both with built-in storage. All Coodo dwellings are designed with passive house strategies, using mostly recyclable materials, and outfitted with smart home features like app-controlled lights and temperature monitoring.

Since the first Coodo was installed in Switzerland in February 2015, the company has built over a dozen more around the world. Coodos can serve as primary or secondary residences, and are offered as plain shells, fully furnished, or somewhere in between. Estimated costs are upon request.

Here’s a video of its Installation.
