Mt Vernon Biv

Mount Vernon Biv is a Doc backcountry hut inspired 'urban tramping hut'.

This home caters for a growing family and enables their active outdoor lifestyle.  The design was centred on the idea of an ‘urban tramping hut’, our clients having had many adventures together in traditional DoC huts in the Aotearoa wilderness.

We found original construction drawings of New Zealand back country huts, drawn in 1957; these and photographs of more modern DoC back-country huts informed the design philosophy.
