We are very proud to be an approved supplier for the National Trust and our most recent project to design and build a Welcome Hub is another great success! Wentworth Castle Gardens was a particularly special project for Pod Space as it’s also located in our spectacular home county of Yorkshire.
The unique UK site presented specific challenges in finding the right building to complement the Grade 1 registered landscape and the vast array of historic UK structures and monuments that punctuate the gardens. The final scheme for the centre was a bespoke design based on our Eco Pod but with some features unique to Wentworth, leaving us with a beautifully customised eco cabin.
The exterior has many of the quality materials that Pod Space are recognised for, but there’s also full height glazed doors to the front and rear of the building to provide access through to the gardens. Each entrance has a solid canopy area so that the staff can keep the doors open to welcome visitors in whatever the weather (a must have in the UK)!
On the interior, the full height space is open into the apex to create a light spacious sanctuary for visitors arriving to the gardens from the car parks and transport hubs. It’s the perfect showcase for the National Trust to entice new members and welcome existing visitors. Within the space we’ve also created a separate secure office space and a membership area so there’s zoned quiet areas even on the busiest of holidays.
We are delighted with the finished result and at our recent visit, it seems the visiting public and staff users are also enjoying all that UK’s Wentworth Castle Gardens has to offer too.
