When The Green Pod Company was asked to build holiday accommodation on the side of a mountain in the Scottish Highlands, the design team was presented with an exciting opportunity to, quite literally, expand the world of luxury glamping. As well as strict planning requirements, the design called for easy transportation to a site inaccessible to wide loads and easy installation without traditional foundations.
The resulting pod can be set up in just a few hours from delivery and can be easily closed up, moved and stored – it can even be stacked!
With a shipping container at its core, pods feature a push-in/pull-out gliding extension and are built to withstand extreme weather. The spacious, luxury accommodation provides comfort in the most remote locations; a utopia for those seeking a wilderness experience. Through design and the various choices of external and internal finishes, The Green Pod Company ensures pods blend into their surroundings.
The use of recycled materials throughout extends to the insulation, which produces a very low U-value, keeping guests warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This reduces both fuel bills and environmental impact.
The pods are designed and built in Britain using British suppliers, proudly investing in the British economy.
This product offers visitors a welcome, relaxing sanctuary within the wilds of nature, totally in keeping with the surroundings, together with key practical elements that make running such a destination easy and remarkably versatile. 01962 777362 / www.thegreenpodcompany.co.uk
