The Piddington Pod Case Study
Inno-Therm®/Métisse® recycled cotton/denim insulation has been installed in the Piddington Pod. The Pod is an extraordinary bespoke copper-clad eco-dwelling. It is modelled on the huts of nomads. It was centre stage on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces broadcast on Channel 4 29th October 2015 at 8pm.
Each Pod creates a unique enclosed space intended to provide a small self-standing eco-dwelling for creative purposes. It was designed as a quiet place of sanctuary.
The Pod is weatherproof and designed for any outdoor area. The Pod has 16 square meters of floor space.
The pod’s eco-credentials:
- clad in hand-beaten copper shingles made from upcycled hot water tanks
- frames and roof are made from sustainable timber
- reclaimed doors, window frames and floorboards
- recycled denim insulation.
