Co-design and Build
Collaborating with Fathom Architects and responding to a brief by creative agency dn&co we developed and costructed this 3.4m x 3.4m x 3.4m cube.
The Pod, located in the emerging creative business district of White City Place in west London, formerly home to the BBC, is a moveable temporary structure for the recording of podcasts.
The 12sqm pod seats up to six people and provides a fully functional studio.
With only three months between initial consultation and completed project delivery it was an ambitious brief.
We provided a fully weather proof, glazed, air conditioned, fully-mobile unit (with underfloor heating!)
The client needed the finished article to ‘appear from nowhere’ so we delivered over night and had the pod ready to go before first light.
We continue to operate ongoing maintenance for the life of the project.
A bold patterned façade was generated from the first spoken words transmitted by radio: “One, two, three, four. Is it snowing where you are Mr Thiessen?” A bespoke digital script was developed to translate the recording into 350,000 printed pixels using a colour palette drawn from the development’s branding.
