Just north of Auckland, New Zealand in Kaiwaka, sits two autonomous, four-walled cabin dwellings made from wood with burnt black for the outside.

The designers at Cheshire Architects decided to create these decadent, yet tiny structures, code name, Eyrie, to “provide inhabitants with a poetic escape and off-the-grid experience.
Each is only 29sqm or 312 sqft enabling, or forcing the designers to stick to the bare necessities of everyday living. These holiday homes have two large openings as doors, one to frame the landscape outside and the other as the entrance. Several hatches allow for ventilation with a skylight on the ceiling proving endless views of the stars at night.
Despite the small size, each has two levels and well-crafted finishings, so they don’t feel claustrophobic.
