Pod Space is the award-winning company that specializes in prefab (shortened slang term for “prefabricated”) buildings, and it has just solved your needed extra space issue.
The company specializes in manufacturing small prefabricated modular spaces, or “pods”, as it calls them, which can be installed in the garden or backyard, or even the side of the house, in order to provide an extra room, either for guests, or office space, or simply your own personal “escape space”, for relaxing and taking a break from everyday life.
First things first, some term explanation is needed, starting with “prefab”. As we stated, “prefab” is short for “prefabricated”. It’s not a strictly architectural term, but rather a term used to describe all forms of pre-made homes, which in modern architecture are divided in roughly three large categories: mobile homes, manufactured homes (created on another site and transported to your build site), and our next term in need of explanation, modular homes.
Modular homes are homes that consist of different parts, transported to your build site and then assembled into the finished house. The parts mostly resemble boxes of cubes, and are called “modules”. In Pod Space’s case, the small modules are assembled to create a limited space, not large enough to be called a house, but large and remote enough to be considered a separate space.
Apart from the aesthetically pleasing design, containing large Scandinavian glass panels and wood, both providing great insulation and light, Pod Space emphasizes the product’s merits on their website, focusing on three major points: The design, the Eco-friendly character of the building, and the planning.
