Whangapoua Sled House by Crosson Clarke Carnachan

This portable beach front vacation home sits atop a pair of timber sleds, enabling the structure to be towed up and down the coast. The compact structure was built to provide a cozy getaway for up to a family of 5. The coastal zoning prohibited built structures so the crafty architects decided to make a entirely sustainable, and movable structure.

This room features our Double closet doors with Echowood Rift Walnut veneers, walnut shutters, and a matching Bath entry door. Check out more sustainable doors, and exotic wood veneers at our website, http://www.greenleafdoors.com . 

This house, “Entre Arboles”, was designed specifically for the piece of property it sits on. The architects took careful consideration of the trees that inhabit the property. Because there was not a place without trees that was big enough to fit the entire house, the architects decided to make the house into three volumes, and build around the trees. As you can see, the wooden decks that connect the three volumes, were designed, and built around the already existing trees. Not one tree was cut down to make room for this house.
