Penn Hall School
Penn hall is a special school for children ages 3-19 years old with physical disabilities and complex medical needs.
Pod Living were approached by the school to provide a Rebound Therapy room which utilises Trampolines for therapeutic exercise and recreation, for people with a wide range of special needs.
Initially there were various challenges to overcome, namely the site access, restrictions and positioning of the building.
Pod Living designed the pod so the trampoline sank into the floor. This allowed us to keep the ceiling height to around 2.8 metres. The ground level was excavated to allow for the Trampoline pit.
We brought in the Eco Pod parts by hand and assembled the building from more manageable pieces.
The pod benefits from a large decked veranda to the front and side, with a very useful undercroft, which is utilised for valuable storage for the school.
The new “swoosh” design was clad in Western Red Cedar which blends in naturally with the wooded aspect. Contrasting green Rockpanel facias gives a nice effect. The roof also benefits from an Astro Turf covering.
The Pod benefits from an Air Source Heat Pump, which provides very efficient heating and cooling.
We have installed colour changing mood lighting along with custom made wall panelling with various patterns and textures. A secure automatic winch allows the careful lifting of children to enjoy the Trampoline Therapy.
We hope the school enjoy this unique building for many years to come.
