Eyrie houses

eyrie_aprilandmay_1 eyrie_aprilandmay_2 eyrie_aprilandmay_3 eyrie_aprilandmay_4 Eyrie comprises two houses near Kaiwaka New Zealand made by Cheshire Architects. Each is barely larger than four sheets of plywood. They are made from wood, are off-grid and autonomous, their outsides burnt black. In these houses a history of prismatic abstraction is conflated with a poetic of small boats bobbing in a sea of grass. There are no doors. One climbs up boulders and in through a window instead. They hoped that in subverting the shorthand language of building these little constructions might feel like something other than – and more than – houses.

We really like these two!
