About us

Black Hut Designs originated as a response to the earthquakes. People in Canterbury lost their homes and their crockery amongst other things and for some this forced a reconsideration of values. At Black Hut we started with small resilient designs which could be easily moved out of trouble similar to the original occupants of Aotearoa. Over time we have realised connection to land and place is equally important not only to people here in Christchurch but across New Zealand. Our focus has changed along our journey to designing resilient high performance buildings exploring sustainable non-toxic materials which can withstand not only the test of time but successfully maintain their connection to the land.
