Beach Hut in New Zeland [480]

This beach house is presented as a piece of furniture dragged to the beach on large wooden runners. It is a wooden box, where outer shutters act both as solar protection and safety enclosure. They are built with the same wood as the rest of the façade, featuring an image of elemental prism when closed.

The protections of some windows of certain height are double to make its opening easier. The wide visor of the main facade opens through mechanisms that are evident in the steering wheel on the side facade. With this great folded visor and the huge glazed doors open, the house becomes a beautiful box completely open to the sea.
