When the Hilton Group approached Pod Space with the brief to provide a relaxation and yoga hub for their Snowdonia hotel, we were delighted to be involved. The proposed building was to be located in a central position in the Wave Garden Spa, to provide a space for their discerning guests to relax and re-energise in the beautiful surroundings of the National Park.
The challenge to provide a building that would complement the natural surroundings of the Snowdonia countryside whilst also complementing the contemporary styling of the hotel.
The hotel is nestled in the Welsh hills and the prominent outdoor location alongside the hotel leisure facilities promoted a requirement for a building that would with stand harsh weather conditions and use by guests straight out of the water.
Perhaps most critical of all, the Pod was to be the central hub to provide a peaceful sanctuary for yoga and relaxation within the leisure facility.
Pod Space design team put together a proposal for a bespoke version of our Eco Pod which fulfilled all of the requirements with use of natural Siberian Larch exterior cladding, whist the colour matched flashings and trims picked out elements of the scheme for the main hotel. The custom made floor to ceiling glazing completed the exterior design to create a focal point for guests making use of the hotel garden spa facilities.
On the interior the full height glazing creates a light, airy space with views out towards the natural beauty of the hills and mountains beyond, whilst the high levels of insulation ensure that guests remain comfortable within the peaceful space.
