Winslow can be regarded as the crown of the GreenPod series, with this being the largest by quite some margin. In total, it measures 731 square feet although despite this large size, it only contains one bedroom and bathroom.
What is the general design of Winslow?
Due to the fact that Winslow is one of the newest offerings from GreenPod, there is little information that details its internal views. In fact, there are suspicions that Winslow has not even been built for any clients, as GreenPod merely provide an artist’s impression of the building with little other data. Nevertheless, it is known that the property contains just one bedroom and one bathroom - the standard practice for most homes from this architect. Moreover, it contains two huge balcony areas that can be accessed from each side of the property, as well as a small porch outside the front entrance.
What does the exterior of Winslow look like?
There is no doubt that GreenPod have made every effort to make Winslow appear as modern as possible, with the exterior mainly constructed of light metals. It also contains small amounts of wood, with the roof made out of this material and made into shed form. Winslow incorporates more glass than any other offering from GreenPod, with the vast majority of wall space using glass. This means that there is an incredible amount of natural light flooding into the building and of course, such large quantities of glass contribute to the modern theme as well.
Is Winslow a sustainable property?
Anybody that has knowledge of the GreenPod brand will know that the company prides itself on manufacturing green products. Admittedly, some of these can come at an additional cost, yet for those who take sustainability seriously Winslow can incorporate a whole variety of features. Considering the huge amount of glass that has been included, many will be relieved to hear that all windows are double glazed, while the little wall space that does exist contains the most modern insulation methods. Plenty of focus has also been made on the plumbing and Winslow benefits from a low flush toilet, with buyers having the option of purchasing composting toilets if they so desire. Other packages such as solar panels, a car charging system and SIPs panels are all possible as well and this means that Winslow can be a very energy efficient building.
A summary on Winslow
Not only is Winslow the largest product in the GreenPod catalogue, but it is also the most modern. The amount of glass that has been utilized in this design is frightening and not only contributes to the modern style, but provides that natural light that all homeowners desire. Due to the fact that Winslow is the newest product in the range, the architects have made every effort to incorporate as many green principles as possible and this means that any buyer will be purchasing a property that is very environmentally friendly.
One of the main questions with prefabs is if a property can be used for any purposes other than residential. In the case of Winslow, this is debatable as while some commercial enterprises will love the aesthetically pleasing exterior, there's no doubt that GreenPod have designed the property with the residential user in mind.
