Dune House

we're really excited to be working on a new click-raft project which sits parallel to its dune landscape like a small outrigger.  The building is designed for off-site fabrication combining steel frames with click-raft cassettes wrapped in translucent polycarbonate to create a wonderful open double height living volume. The upper level contains compact bathroom and bedrooms within the click-raft substructure.

click-raft and PrefabNZ at INEX trade show Auckland

Wonderful to have the click-raft at INEX trade show Auckland, together with the beautiful Obodo timber insulated cassette panel, thin skin PSP polycarbonate panel, samples from Colour Steel and plenty of images of projects built and in progress - a good opportunity for people to see it up close. Many thanks to Mathew Hay for storing and supplying it to site, to Yusef and his wonderful student army for on-site assembly and Heidi from PrefabNZ and Vikram from Makers - what a fabulous team!

weekend sketches

weekends are great for dreaming and sketching...
click-raft was always meant as a vehicle for exploring things differently, testing ideas that have been bubbling away in the background, waiting for the right moment to emerge...

Callaghan Innovation - Lab Office Pod

CMA+U with Makers and PTL structural engineers are full steam ahead on the rapid design, fabrication and assembly of a click-raft laboratory office pod for Callaghan Innovation at their Gracefield campus. The structure is a double span click-raft of 20m2 clad with insulated plywood cassettes and polycarbonate panels, supported on a minimal black steel frame to maximise space below and to provide office workspace for six researchers within the new pod which also provides a good overview of the laboratory space below.
