+ portable holiday home

A bach is a traditional Kiwi holiday home, usually by the sea, which sells for vast sums.
New Zealand architecture firm Atelierworkshop created a bach-in-a-box fully equipped with everything you need!
A 35-square-metre shipping container cleverly designed to allow one side to fold down to become a large sunny deck. Even the container doors become the supports for a bed, which folds up neatly into a standard container. Fully enclosed exterior steel shell.
It comfortably sleeps four (very friendly) people. It’s self-contained with simple caravan-style electricity and water connections and a solar unit, which allows total independence in remote areas. It’s totally portable and a fraction of the cost of the average getaway.
