time (or past time) to shut the cottage down. Check this simple little alternative. It's a portable cottage. How genius is this? This particular beach, located off the northern coast of New Zealand (Coromandel Peninsula) requires houses to be mobile. Keep it simple. Keep it clean. A killer design that flows so well with its natural surroundings. From the weathered hardwoods that fold and collapse to either open up or shield the space depending on occupancy to the cozy, compact interior and overall ease of mobility. The structure is anchored to a steel sled that can be towed right off site. Perfect. See ya next season.

A modern, rugged vibe here showcasing this cottage and guest house. Love the depth and texture with the matte aluminum brick style cladding. And to take the exterior a little further they drop that wild yellow on the entry doors. Fresh! They've clearly embraced the natural surroundings while designing the residence as well. Oversized windows maximizing views, large distinct overhangs providing shade and rustic weathered wood accents making up the sliding barn style doors.
classic, the dutch door. Always a good choice.
