8x8 - 8x12 green house

Solution Overview

It keeps people separated. The green house is all glass so would be easy to clean and disinfect. By using solar lighting, you would keep it environmentally safe while keeping it budget friendly. They are also small enough that it would not be much to keep heated. It would still look expensive yet the greenhouses are very affordable. Also, you would be able to resell the houses once we return to normal.  It is all glass so you dont have to feel claustrophobic and you can appreciate the beautiful city.
