With working from home on the rise, PassivPod is the perfect garden office

According to a study by Virgin Media, the number of people working from home in the UK is set to reach 15.6 million by 2022. That’s a lot of laptops on the kitchen table and conference calls taken in the spare bedroom among piles of washing. We all know that’s not ideal for productivity.

So how about extending your property to create a home office? Mess, disruption, expense… what if you could create a garden office that is prefabricated and transported to site in modules for seamless, quick assembly? A garden office that’s been designed to enhance productivity? A garden office that won’t require planning permission?

Enter PassivPod…

Why does PassivPod make the perfect garden office?

The innovative pod shape has been designed using biophilic principles, which is an architectural style which incorporates and mimics nature. Biophilic design has been proven to have positive psychological and physiological effects, including lower stress and enhanced productivity.

The front glazing provides garden views and ample daylighting which is vital for reducing mental fatigue as per the attention restoration theory. The pod will be made from all natural materials, highly insulated and well ventilated. This will ensure superior internal air quality (good ventilation has been proven to enhance cognition in office workers) and energy efficiency, keeping your bills down as well as saving the planet.

Speaking of saving the planet, the PassivPod garden office is zero carbon in operation with very low embodied carbon – combining comfort with sustainability, without the eco price premium.

At 15m2 the space will comfortably house one or two desks plus storage. The PassivPod eco garden office is the perfect place to get your creative juices flowing, or to boost your concentration for mentally taxing tasks. It even decreases stress through its natural materials and unique, nature-mimicking shape.

Maybe you want a peaceful reading nook or place to practice yoga or meditation? The PassivPod eco garden office pod is an additional multi-functional room in your garden which costs less than extending, is quick to assemble, and is good for the environment.
