Sleek & Slideable: Whangapoua Sled House

Architecture & Interiors

Crosson Clark Carnachan Architects hit one out of the ball park with their cute and clever Whangapoua Sled House. We just love modern design that isn’t huge; that’s a reasonable size but still has everything you need and looks great. Located on a white sand beach on New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula, the home is tall, narrow and covered in lovely wood hues.

“Designed to close up against the elements, the hut measures a mere 40 square metres and rests on two thick wooden ‘sleds’ that allow it to be shifted around the beach front section. This innovative portability is a response to the ever changing landscape that line the beachfront in this coastal erosion zone.”

What do you think about the look of this home? What do you think about a home that can be slid around?
