Blogging stuff I like

On the shore of an idyllic white sandy beach on New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula rests an elegant hut. The site lies within the coastal erosion zone, where all building must be removable. This is taken literally and the hut is designed on two thick wooden sleds for movement back up the site or across the beach and onto a barge. dezeen

    I presume the services can be disconnected during transport? I love the design, very simple and robust. There are not enough simple huts these days, built from honest materials and detailed simply. Have you seen the work of American architect, Tom Kundig? He is the master of the operable wall / roof / deck. He visited Australia on a lecture tour recently – if you’re interested, I wrote an article about him on our blog, here.
