Mitchell Coll has teamed up with a client, a Kiwi architect based in Hong Kong, to design and develop BIV Cabin. Located in the Punakaiki bush, this aesthetic cabin is designed as reinterpretation of a historic gold-mining hut, but of course with all modern facilities to welcome travelers and guests, encouraging them to have a nice West Coast and New Zealand experience. this cabin is the first series of buildings which will be rented as high-end, short-term accommodation.
There are many historical gold-mining huts local to the area, these buildings have specific form where the architect took cues from those exterior chimneys repeated on those huts.
BIV Cabin by Fabric Architecture features transparent roof that faces the sky, it represents the top of a smokestack while those large windows offer amazing views of the cliffs and bush of its surrounding. It wants to deliver ultimate West Coast experience. This nice cabin is designed to bring you the essence of those humble huts yet will all modern inclusions that you can expect from high-end accommodation. The interior is intentionally underlit to create a cozy environment.
