Natural materials, such as larch cladding, are utilised alongside modern materials to produce a design that balances concerns for the immediate and wider environment with the need for functional usage and aesthetic elegance.
The willow tree was the inspiration for the external cladding. As the tree ages the bark of the willow splits, producing an abstract lattice. The way in which light from the sun interacts with the swaying branches of the tree has also influenced the design. The sun casts beautiful shadows and alternative perspectives are created through which the beauty of nature can be appreciated. To pay homage to the willow, and to the nature that inspired us, we chose to name our pod “Helygen” – the Welsh translation of willow.
As an architectural practice, we are conscious of the impact our designs have on the natural world. The Helygen sits comfortably within different settings, such as green pastures and woodlands and more built-up environments such as towns and villages. It has been designed with functionality and versatility in mind.
The space offered within the Helygen allows individuals, couples and groups to settle in comfort and style. Our streamlined design provides the privacy and comforts of home to a standard that mainstream pod designs aren’t able to accommodate.
