Huts on Sleds Crosson, Clarke, Carnachan

Measuring only 40 square meters, this little hut located on New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula shows that density does not necessarily mean clutter. Storage space lines the interior walls and provides accessible compartments regardless of what floor the occupant is on. As with most small dwellings, the ingenuity of space lies in the feeling of openness. A large, collapsable door which can provide shelter from the elements also opens fully to a spectacular view and plenty of ocean breeze. These, along with a loft that doesn’t fully extend to the front wall, give the home almost a vacation suite feel without disrupting the simple, functional appeal.
