The Retreat could offer a luxury glamping experience in your own back yard, providing a luxurious apartment with separate shower room and alcove for a kitchen. This solution is suitable for couples or families, the Coach House provides more than just additional accommodation, but a whole living space.
The Retreat Cabin can be made in a variety of configurations, choose the number and position of all the extensions and choose from 3 different diameters of central cabin: 4m, 5m (pictured) or 6m. The specialist designers can even tweak any elements to suit your individual style, adding bunk packs, mezzanine floors, and storage areas if needed.
The most expensive option on this list offers an eye-catching and quirky design that allows you to connect with nature. The highly insulated core accommodates a living room/bedroom and it’s surrounded by a kitchen, bathroom, boot room, and a veranda with floor to ceiling glass.
The willow tree was the inspiration for the external cladding. As the tree ages, the bark of the willow splits, producing an abstract lattice. The way in which light from the sun interacts with the swaying branches of the tree has also influenced the design. The sun casts beautiful shadows and alternative perspectives are created through which the beauty of nature can be appreciated.
The space offered within the Helygen allows individuals, couples, and groups to settle in comfort and style. Our streamlined design provides the privacy and comforts of home to a standard that mainstream pod designs aren’t able to accommodate.
