Whanapoua House is a sustainable house designed by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects. It is actually a sled model house that can handle a family of five who need their holiday in some different areas. Some green architecture techniques were applied in this house design.

This eco construction were design as sled house to fulfill the client’s needs of having a holiday house. As they wanted to built it in a coastal erosion zone, on Coromandel Peninsula, the architect then decided to design a movable house. The form reminds us to surf shacks or beach observation towers.  This two story building actually has dining, kitchen, living and bathroom space along with two bedrooms. The unique feature is when the family is not using it, it can close itself up against the elements.

Natural materials were used for this sustainable architecture building house. Wooden materials are dominated, including its two thick wooden sleds that allows its owners to move it as required by local planning regulations. Sustainable water treatment and waste management are available. Family’s waste are treated in a worm tank system, and two grey water tanks are also available. The front shutter acts also as an awning that may protect the house from harsh sun light while still allowing winter sun to penetrate the interior. A wood fire place is available to control the indoor temperature on winter.

The interior was designed very efficient, where every available space is used, from cabinetry toe spaces to secret cubby holes within the children’s bunks.
