Lancaster architects launches sustainable eco-pods

Celebrating their 40th year in business, Harrison Pitt Architects have announced the launch of ‘PlusPods’, focusing on the growing popularity of holidaying in the UK. The luxury modular structures can be linked in various combinations to create bespoke, adaptable accommodation.

Working in partnership with specialist timber home manufacturer JT Construction, PlusPods have been designed for long term sustainability, with each constructed and insulated to the highest industry standards for new build house energy efficiency criteria, rather than the lower minimum required for camping and temporary residences.

Sustainably sourced larch for the walls allows sympathetic blending with urban or rural surroundings, while an optional sedum roof allows use in sensitive environments like National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).  Solar panels and a log-burner or pellet stove can also be designed in.

Perfectly placed to support businesses capitalising on 2019 being dubbed the year of ‘exponential growth’ in the luxury staycation market, the pods are ideally designed for businesses looking to extend their accommodation portfolio by offering ‘glamping’.

Richard Wooldridge, director at Harrison Pitt, said: “I had the idea for PlusPods while on a family camping holiday. I realised that a highly insulated glamping pod would be able to lengthen the tourism season by providing comfortable accommodation throughout the colder months; and would also make the PlusPod more cost effective and greener to run.”

Richard added: “We’ve had applications for use as home offices, hotel garden rooms, and even low-impact small residence to our dedicated hotels and leisure team.  Offering planning consultancy, project management and sustainability consultancy, we’re determined to keep innovating and challenging existing market leaders’ lower thermal standard glamping pods.”
