Up Cycled from decommissioned shipping containers, the Coastal Pods Wynyard, offer a unique take on self-contained accommodation. Situated on the banks of the Inglis River in North West Tasmania, sun fills these unique luxury escape pods, offering a seaside sanctuary from which to while away some down time. Each architecturally designed pod has been lovingly constructed and styled to provide maximum comfort and energy efficiency, whilst retaining a design nod to the industrial beach foundation of the development. The styling influence is beach industrial chic (Yes I’m forging a new style!), with an eye to embrace opportunities for recycling and repurposing of found object into pieces of beauty and sustainable functionality.
Inspired by a trip to Christchurch New Zealand, the owners of the Waterfront Wynyard, Cyndia Hilliger and Justin McErlain were keen to utilise shipping containers in a unique way to add to their existing motel accommodation pool. Each Coastal Pod, named after seafaring terms of Starboard and Port, has been set up as a self-contained unit, complete with kitchen, laundry and two king size bedrooms with ensuite and master bathroom facilities. An intimate reading nook with full sized picture windows gives you a private reading sanctuary bathed in northern sunshine. The lounge opens on to the enormous north facing deck, with all the river precinct views you can handle. Watch the fishing boats unload their catch, as sailboats navigate the river tides.
