Located on Waiheke Island near Auckland, in the New Zealand rainforest, Tent House is A-frame cabin captured the back-to-basics simplicity of camping. Comprised of 70m² (753ft²), compact and very liveable Tent House was designed by Chris Tate in 2016. And in 2017 it was shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival in Berlin.
Chris wanted to capture the back-to-basics simplicity of a camping holiday when he designed his Tent House on Auckland’s Waiheke Island.
The tent-like structure of the house responds to those restrictions in a daring and dynamic way. The sharply raking ridge-line and soaring soffit reference the tent experience in an architecturally elegant way.
