Hut on Sleds

Hut on Sleds is an innovative mobile home located on a beach in New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula. It comprises of a 40 square metre multifunctional space, balanced on wooden sleds, which gives the house mobility on a shifting beach landscape. Here is a little more on the project by the people behind the design – Crosson, Clarke, Carnachan Architects:

“The hut comes to life when the enormous shutter on the northeast facade winches open to form an awning, revealing two-storey high steel-framed glass doors that form the main entrance. The hut then transforms into a sun drenched haven, opening up to the views of the surf and the distant Mercury Islands. The mezzanine bedroom is accessed by climbing a wall-mounted ladder through a closeable hatch, it shares the same view as downstairs through the huge glass doors. Climb the ladder again and you arrive on a roof terrace which catches rainwater for the gravity tanks behind.”
