Fancy one of these in your garden. Need extra accommodation for friends & relatives.
The pod is 500sq feet of relocatable space that can be made into various uses, so we did a little house, as per attached pictures. It has a double bedroom to one end with a balcony a bathroom, kitchen and lounge with folding doors to both ends to encourage cross ventilation. there is also room to install a fold down bed in the lounge. This could either be the perfect Eco retreat or small living space.

The Eco Pod 'As featured on Grand Designs'can be configured to a variety of layouts from extra office space, to holiday let accommodation.Robert Gaukroger's design office have completed the design and build of Elleray Prep School schools new forest classroom in Windermere, UK.The design took inspiration from research his former university friend Scott Pryde was undertaking on Ron Herron's â€˜Walking City'. Robert Gaukroger aimed to create flexible spaces which can be reconfigured according to the users. One of the spaces will become the year 6 form room and the central connecting space the forest classroom in summer, It is also hoped the spaces can been used out of school time as a Gallery and event venue. â€˜the spaces feel exciting to the children who use them, a comfortable scale and safe, early results as the children move in are amazing, eyes wide open and smiles every time a child enter the classroom for the first time.' As a sustainable project the structures were built off site entirely of timber, with a timber ribbed frame and English chestnut shingle shell- the structures are elevated from the ground using Douglas fir stilts. The site was a natural clearing at the edge of a woodland opposite the existing school; â€˜I positioned the pod like structures not mathematically but how they naturally fit, one between a rock outcrop and a tree while the other two follow the lines of the site. There is a tranquil feel to the spaces; as the mature trees we have tiptoed around blow above us, it's almost as if they found their own way into the clearing.'
