‘A modern office with PassivPod’ & ‘Brighton joint venture wins 2018 Best National New Business’ – July 2018
Brighton’s Chamber of Commerce reported on PassivPod’s win on their member news blog, as well as posting about our garden office pod as a ‘modern take on the home office’.
The article reads:
PassivPod, who recently won the Sustainability Award for Brighton Innovators, tell us about their modern take on the home office.
Home workers who seek extra space can now choose a unique award-winning office, designed to improve health and cognitive abilities. The 2018 Technology Award for Innovation in Sustainable Accommodation has been won by Brighton architects at Passiv Pod Ltd. A team of five architects, planners and consultants have created the world’s first timber frame zero-carbon ellipsoid-shaped home office.
The team was formed from a joint venture between Koru Architects, specialists in low-carbon building designs, and Strategic Management Partners, advisors in health and technology innovation. Co-founders Mark Pellant and Clive Bonny have launched a range of energy-saving buildings and are organising a crowdfund to sell shares in the business.
Clive says: “Our biophilic design improves occupancy wellbeing and can reduce energy costs by 90%. Our crowdfund plans a high return on investment. We also offer attractive referral fees of 2% to 5% of sale price to anyone introducing us to potential buyers of garden offices, classrooms and eco-lodges shown at www.passivpod.co.uk”
In a separate post, Brighton Chamber of Commerce also reported on PassivPod’s double win at the Best New Business Awards 2018 in June.
