As part of Podular’s developer series, this project engaged an entity that sought accommodation for short term conference stays and retreats. Nestled by a lake, water views from each pod were a fundamental consideration for the design. Privacy, functionality and comfort were achieved by a considered design that selected materials to express this.
As well as aesthetics, efficiency was a key element of the concept, with a cost effective solution the result of careful design, detailing and selection.
