Pod Kitchens and bathrooms
Inspired by the work of ‘Help Bristol’s Homeless’ charity, container manufacturer, Newspace of Lydney in Gloucestershire, has created a specially designed Sleepover Pod to help ease the City’s rough sleeping issue. The unit has been sited at Bristol’s Malago Road which is an area of ground currently unused, although earmarked for development.
‘Pod’ seems to be a buzzword latching on to multiple room styles at present, none more so than kitchens and bathrooms. Pod kitchens and bathrooms are compact, prefabricated spaces that can be installed quickly and easily in applications where time, money and crucially space needs to be made the most of.
These space saving pieces of genius are ideal for buildings that need to utilise every last inch, such as city hotels and student accommodation. Furthermore, considering the rate at which high density housing is being built across the UK, it looks like pods might be here to stay.
