The challenge for designers is to organise spaces that work despite the constraints of budget. The tiny house movement has grown significantly in the last few years as clients struggle to come to grips with building costs, and both land cost and availability. Another part of this is the ubiquitous cabin for camping…a hope away from home for a few days or weeks, which are in essence a form of tiny home with the same constraints of fitting most if not all the “mod cons” of home at the beach. Modello was asked to design one such cabin at Waipu Cove and construction will get underway at the end of the Camp’s busy season. Clad in materials in keeping with other recently constructed buildings, this will add another asset to the Camp’s portfolio of cabins which are increasingly popular as an alternative to tenting, as well as extending the seasons for the Camp.
