In Spring we're stepping out in to our gardens and planning our projects for the year. It's usually around March time that our customers start imagining how a new home office, gym or relaxation space would work in the unloved corner of their garden that they've just cleared out as part of the Spring tidy up!Here we're showcasing some of the inspiring projects where the Pod has become a focal point in the garden.
A small London garden was transformed with the Lite Pod the perfect fit to draw the eye in and become a central feature of the scheme. The full height glazing provides a link back to the house so that the Pod is the ideal solution for home working in peace and with one of the best views in London! The patio, planting and carefully planned integrated seating create a garden that's simple and low maintenance. The Pod marries up all of the surrounding materials so that the finished result has harmony and balance in the Spring sunshine.
The Neo Pod was re-designed in 2021 but remains a firm favourite. This small London garden is the perfect example of a Neo Pod taking up a space at the end of the garden which would otherwise have been overlooked. In this instance the building provides screening from the neighbouring houses and and interesting feature to complement the rest of the garden design. The planting to the left of the garden leads the view down to the Pod which is a central feature of the whole landscape. Although the building is prominent it doesn't dominate and the glazing reflects the Spring garden to give the impression of lengthening the garden.
This Lite Pod is barely visible amongst the Spring planting that surrounds it. There are footpaths for access but the predominant feature of this garden is the woodland and planting around a courtyard where the Pod is sited. It's a great example of a Pod that can can form part of a planted landscape to blend in rather than make a bold statement. This garden had a very much more traditional style with informal planting and wild flowers and despite the contemporary design of the Pod, it is complementary. The glazing and natural timber transition to the meadow flowers and native trees of this area of the garden.
The Glide Pod colours are also picked up in the landscape design of this beautiful Spring garden in Surrey. The structure of the formal planting picks up the horizontal lines of the building and the pathways and patio are planned in colours and textures to complement. Even the reflection of the water feature mirrors the glazing to the front of the Pod. The building itself is multi functional as an office, gym, relaxation space. We can't think of a better place to be than sitting in this Pod, overlooking the perfectly planned landscape on a gorgeous Spring day.
