The Cheltenham Festival 2018
Remote Possibilities are delighted to be working with The Jockey Club and Cheltenham Borough Council. Our POD+ units, operating as the official box office for The Festival 2018, have be installed at Cheltenham Railway Station and on Cheltenham High Street as part of a new initiative to provide ticket sales and festival information in the town centre. The modular design of the PODS allowed them to be simply wheeled into place in both locations, providing an immediate, sustainable space solution for The Jockey Club.
We were a partner at Design Junction 2017, a showcase of the very best in furniture, lighting and product design from around the world during the annual London Design Festival. Sharing Granary Square in Kings Cross with the Renault Trezor concept car and the critically acclaimed ceramic archways by Turkish Ceramics, our PODS were utilized as the event’s Box Office to welcome over 28,000 design professionals and consumers.
Modular, Flexible and Sustainable
We create simple, sustainable, flexible structures that accommodate a variety of uses and respond to individual briefs or locations. Our PODS, available in 3 sizes, are designed by our team of architects in the Cheltenham office and made in our workshop nearby. We believe maintaining the close relationship between the manufacture and the creative process is paramount to ensuring quality and consistency.
Each POD is entirely flexible in its configuration within the structural steel frame. Solid walls and glass panels may be interchanged to suit commercial or residential environments. The PODS may be spray painted to any British Standard finish or clad in a bespoke wrap to offer true individuality for the end user.
The PODS can be transported and installed within a day (for mainland UK) to provide an immediate space resource.
Restored by artist Craig Barnes and the Remote Possibilities team, this spaceship style, prefabricated fibreglass house was designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in the late 1960s and is one of only 60 worldwide still in existence today.
