Architect Chris Tate’s charming Tent House is a personal weekend home and studio in New Zealand, an A-frame structure that “challenges the expectations of what a weekend house may be.” Though only a mere 70 square meters, the home appears more spacious thanks to huge sliding doors and its cathedral ceilings. Equipped with a mezzanine bedroom, bath, kitchen and an open-plan living area, this atypical house is a dreamy retreat hidden in the natural forest landscape it’s built in. The home is occasionally used for photo shoots and short term accommodations when possible.

Tent House was shortlisted in 2017’s World Architecture Festival in Berlin for the Small Projects Prize.
