Hut On Sleds

This tiny cabin is built on two thick wooden sleds so it can be towed off the beach and out of harm´s way. Designed by Crosson Architects, the Hut on Sleds is a holiday home built just over two hours drive from Aukland, New Zealand, and finds its shape inspired by lifeguard towers common on beaches around the world. The aesthetic is naturalistic, with unpainted timber evocative of wind and sand-blasted timber of beach-side structures. The fittings and mechanics are industrial and exposed giving the structure an industrial vibe that is both inviting and informative. A huge shutter folds up across the exterior to reveal and shade a two-storey glazed facade, which has an open-plan living room and mezzanine bedroom behind. Measuring a mere 40 square metres, the tiny cabin can accommodate a family of five, and is designed to close up against the elements when not in use.

SKYSCAPE ROOFTOP HOUSE

In hyper-dense cities, rooftops are the new untapped real estate. This impressive minimalist dwelling is built on the rooftop of a five-story apartment building in Bangkok, Thailand. The rooftop was previously only used to store water tanks, leaving an expanse of empty space for WARchitect to work their magic and build an ultra-modern home that emerges out of nowhere in the sky.
