As Unique As You Are

Grand Designs Live Pod | London



Exhibition Location: London ExCel Arena


Customer Location: Surrey


Brief: For Grand Designs Live 2014 we were required to create a RAPOD suitable for transporting to the show as a demonstration garden room which would function as our stand. This would then be sold onto a client for a discounted price.

It was important that we showcased all the important elements of RAPOD and allowed potential customers to view the range of finishes we have on offer, particularly exterior cladding options.



“I've never seen anything similar from all the other garden room companies I have investigated!”

- Potential Customer


Use: Home Office

Size: 3.8m x 2.8m

Windows/Doors: 3.5m Bifold Door, Top-Hung Slot Window and Full Height Fixed Window

Roof Colour: Anthracite

Cladding: Left Hand Side = Zinc, Back Wall = Accoya T&G, Right Hand Side - RAPOD *Signature* Cladding consisting of Mineral Black Slate Effect Board and Accoya Slats

Flooring: Engineered Wood (Ash)

Wall Finish: Painted Deco Walls by RAPOD – Colour: RAPOD Green Pantone



The exhibition was a huge success and generated a lot of enquiries that have recently become orders. This RAPOD received great feedback regarding the bright interior and someone even commented on how it would always brighten their working day. The ZINC cladding was a RAPOD EXCLUSIVE specifically launched at the Grand Designs Live show and we received great feedback concerning the contemporary and aesthetic appeal of the exterior.

“The Zinc would be a perfect addition to my modern garden.”

- Potential Customer

As this RAPOD had been constructed onto a steel base specifically for the purpose of the show, the customer could have the garden room sit upon the pre laid concrete foundations - a lot easier installation for our team!

The current owner is extremely happy with the building and is particularly fond of the selection of finishes around the building that would usually be an extra cost.


“The different finishes are perfect as luckily I can walk around my garden room. It’s a great talking point when I have visitors. I obviously have the zinc cladding facing my property as I think this is the most attractive side and the bi fold doors therefore remain facing the sun – when it is actually out!

I am so pleased with my new office and my 2 year old daughter is particularly happy in this bright room. It’s where I take her when she’s having a restless night so the futon has made its way into our RAPOD.

I was so impressed with the speed the team got it in and they even made appropriate adjustments to the doors that had moved slightly during transit. Thank you to the entire team and I would highly recommend purchasing a Garden Room from RAPOD.”
