Cube or Pod 

Call it what you like – it’s square! A simple, compact and practical (typically) one-person work or chill-out space, offering a clean, cost-effective and contemporary design and usually exempt from planning permission. Ideal if space is at a premium. Can be made bigger! 


An extension of the Square (!), offering additional space to accommodate more people or just more of your stuff. It may also be more appropriate to your site, maximising the space available.


Visualise 2 L-shapes (left and right) pushed together, 2 L-Shapes with a Square in the middle or 2 Rectangles with a Square in the middle or…you get our drift (we hope)! This style has the added benefit of a protected ‘inner’ space, like a small courtyard, which can be used for outdoor entertaining for example; it’s a great design for a granny annexe, extra accommodation and living space and often includes bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

A combination of the cube/pod & rectangle designs really!
