Small, Smart & Easily Movable Hut On New Zealand’s Shoreline

Advertising

Set in a serene environment on the shore of New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula, this modern hut is a small and simple holiday retreat. Easy to remove from this coastal erosion zone, the contemporary hut named Whangapoua was built on two thick wooden sleds that can be loaded on a barge and moved. Designed by Crosson Clarke Carnachan, which you might remember built the Rahimoana Villa, this 48,8 square meters holiday beach hut encompasses all the necessary amenities for a family of five. Entering through a double-height set of glass doors from the beach deck, the living/dining/kitchen zone continues in the back with a bathroom and a three tiered bunk kids room. Upstairs, a mezzanine bedroom for the parents opens towards enchanting stretches of water. Displaying a Monterey Cypress (Macrocarpa) cladded facade and sides, the hut’s rear was clad in a cheap, traditional building material called “flat sheet”, merging recognizable materials in a movable display of modern architecture.
