Roost, UK.

Garden rooms are great to add that extra space within your lovely estate or landscaped grounds. It is like a little hideaway from your home to be inspired by nature, a guesthouse, game room or even as a home office. I love the little pods designed by Roost. I can't decide which I love best. They are all so unique. All of them comes with an option for sedum grass live matting roof instead of membrane rubber. The structures are made of SIPS (Structurally Insulated Panels) with high thermal efficiency which reduces energy consumption significantly and gives good sound insulation.

The R1 comes with built in furniture. The sofa and ottoman can be pushed together to form a double bed but it has no bathroom. Maybe you can install your own garden shower but run back for the toilet. This is their signature pod.

The R2 has options for a kitchenette, shower, w.c, basin and storage unit. This one is definitely more modular and you can use it as a guest house.

The R3 is their latest offering. It is an open space which you can decide what you want to do with it. Its slanted roof resembles "stealth" technology which makes aeroplanes, boats and ships virtually undetectable by radar.
