HUT ON SLEDS: ZEW ZEALAND

The ultimate motor home... "Hut on sleds" designed by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects is a small, simple, functional - and completely moveable 40 square meter hut. It rests on two thick wooden sleds that allow the home to be shifted around its beach-front location: A clever response to the ever changing landscape in this coastal erosion zone. 

Picture this as your holiday home; built almost entirely of timber, with industrial style fittings and large glass windows facing the oceanfront. You open the front panels as you arrive, letting the sea breeze in and creating an awning to shade from the sun. Then when you need to leave, just close it all up and head on home... Incredible!
