Logic would dictate, because rocket mass heaters do not blow hot air into other rooms, that you would need a source of heat in each "pod". (RMH ducts can be put under the floor to maximize space if you're not using a bell design). I'm sure there are more clever solutions, though, that would enable a single RMH to heat the whole area. Perhaps you could install radiant floor heat in all pods, connected to a single heater... But then again, I have never heard of anyone doing something like that for such a large area. And I lack the hands-on experience that would tell me exactly how far a heater could stretch
